Sibley High School Students Fight to Keep Choir Director

By: Maggie Newland

WEST ST. PAUL, MN -- Students at Henry Sibley High School are fighting to keep their Choir Director. Budget cuts are forcing staffing cuts in the West Saint Paul-Mendota Heights -Eagan School District.

Aaron Kapaun is a favorite among Sibley Students, but he may not be at the high school next year. Budget cuts in the district are forcing some teachers out of jobs others will only have part time work.

Mr. Kapaun is slated to lose about an hour of work every week. Since High School Choir Director is a fulltime job, that job will go to someone with more seniority. and Mr. Kapaun will likely have to move to an elementary school. The District says state law requires these changes.
