School City of East Chicago
Bylaws & Policies


With the increasing demands on the Corporation's resources and the limited means to enhance its resources, the School Board will continue to seek ways to reduce costs without diminishing the quality of services provided to the students of the Corporation.

To that end, the Board authorizes the Superintendent to establish a Cost-Savings Reduction Program, in accordance with I.C. 36-1-13, which will provide opportunities for any employee to suggest ways in which the Corporation can effectively reduce its costs. The type and amount of any awards that may be included in the program, as well as the manner in which any awards would be made, must be approved by the Board. All such awards would be paid with funds allocated to the General Fund.
