Obamacare Means North Putnam Schools Make Cuts

North Putnam Schools are making changes and hiring for two new positions.

They will be hiring Amanda Kramer who will be the new graphic design teacher and the new high school head basketball coach will be Lukas Haworth.

Thanks for Obamacare they will also limit the hours of non-certified workers.

The North Putnam School Board says that the decision to cut the hours of non-certified staff comes from the government's decision on the affordable health care act, which stipulates that, all employees who work over 30 hour weeks must have access to affordable health insurance. All who do not comply with this will be subjected to penalties.

The penalties and the insurance were both something that would put a hardship onto the corporation.
