MOUNT VERNON — In an attempt to address a $7 million budget deficit, the Mount Vernon School District is making cuts to the scheduled hours of district paraeducators, in addition to cuts to various staff such as library and custodial staff.

Paraeducators will have their scheduled hours reduced by two hours on early release days — days in which students are dismissed two hours early.
