EASTON, Pa. - Parents have started an online petition to fight job cuts in the Easton Area School District.
A petition on Change.org has amassed nearly a thousand signatures from people who say they believe cutting 56 positions in the district is too much.
The petition was presented to the school board Tuesday night before a standing room only crowd.
District administrators say making the cuts and raising taxes would bridge a $5 million budget gap.
The petition is asking board members to look at other areas in the proposed budget besides staffing to make cuts.
