Dozens of current and former Woodstock Union High School students crowded the school’s auditorium Wednesday night to urge the WUHS-MS School Board not to cut their favorite teachers out of the 2013-14 budget. In the end, the school board unanimously approved an $11.3 million budget, which includes the reduction of 11 teaching and two staff positions. School board members said they were open to a teachers union proposal of negotiating early retirement for other teachers to save some of the reduced positions.
