Champlain Valley Educational Services has now cut 84 positions.
About a year ago, CVES eliminated 93 positions primarily due to member school districts deciding to teach special education students on their home campuses. This year, CVES’ special-education department provided services to 209 students, and this fall that number will drop to around 130.
CVES offers technical training and special-education services to 17 school districts in Clinton, Essex, Warren and Washington counties.
The most recent reductions at CVES will impact administrators, faculty, teaching assistants, plus clerical and support staff. Despite the cuts, CVES is planning to offer two new programs.
