They also approved the addition of two students through the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services Transition Work Study Program for the 2010-2011 school year and a part-time bus driver monitor.
Two full-time members are leaving the school district, one cafeteria worker and one custodial worker from Washington Irving.
