HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Washington County Board of Commissioners is cutting a $3.3 million county health department program that provides nurses in schools.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports the board made the decision Tuesday before approving spending plans for the coming year.

The money will be used to offset the costs of public school teachers’ pensions.

Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox says officials will need to determine how many nurses are needed, how they will be supplied to schools and how the positions will be funded before the start of the school year.
