Two Norfolk School Programs Survive Budget Cuts
NORFOLK - At a meeting held earlier this year to discuss possible budget cuts for the Norfolk Public Schools, it looked like fourth grade orchestra and the Norfolk FFA Chapter were both history. But Superintendent Marlene Uhing says both programs have survived budget cuts, even though staff members were eliminated in both departments. She says Norfolk has retained its own FFA Chapter, with the help of the advisor from Stanton High School. She stresses that this will not be a joint, co-op program, but rather two programs that share an advisor. Uhing says the music department has also found a way to continue to offer fourth grade orchestra even with one fewer instructor.
