The Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop school board unanimously approved a statutory operating a debt plan during a special meeting Tuesday night. The plan is to reduce 3.6 full-time certified teaching staff, cut the superintendent position to a half time position and also includes a proposal to close the Fairfax Intermediate School building next fall. The plan, which has been submitted to the Minnesota Education Commissioner, includes similar certified teaching staff and classified staff cuts and a hard freeze of all district employee salaries for fiscal year 2022 and 2023. The board also briefly discussed a possible bond referendum but didn’t take any action on it. A public hearing on the proposed Fairfax school building closure is scheduled for 6:30 pm Monday in the GFW Primary School Gym in Gibbon.
