Pueblo County School District 70 board memebrs voted Wednesday night to keep Vineland Middle School open, while making several cost-cutting moves.
The salaries of all non-union employees were frozen. Those same employees must take four unpaid furlough days. In addition, the district plans to open talks with its unions in an attempt to impose the furlough days on union workers.
The school board had been expected to close Vineland Middle School. However, the district plans to seek a mill levy increase on the November ballot that would raise enough revenue to keep the school open.
