Despite criticism from the Ellensburg community, teachers, and parents, the Ellensburg School District’s decision to cut the certified librarian positions from secondary education hasn’t changed.

Superintendent Haberer said the decision was difficult, but the best choice for the school district, which is seeing large budgetary reductions. At the April 6 board of directors meeting, it was announced they are making $1,388,000 in reductions for the next (2022-23) school year.
