It's one step in the district's plan to cut a nearly three million dollar budget deficit in the next two years.
About 12 teachers are expected to be pink slipped.
But school leaders say that depends on the number of people retiring.
Extra-curricular activities are also on the chopping block.
Superintendent Barry Reilly says measures must be taken to make up for the state's lack of funding, and decreased property values.
Those are two of the district's biggest money makers.
"We'll reevaluate where things are at in the fall next year," said Reilly. "We'll make any adjustments that need to be made and hopefully those adjustments will be that we have to reduce less. I'm not optimistic that's going to happen."
The school board approved the motion to move forward with the deficit plan.
It hopes to trim $1.5 million dollars from the deficit in the first year of its cost cutting plan.
