At its Monday evening meeting, the Fairfield Area School Board welcomed two newly-hired teachers. Emily Makar, left, will teach kindergarten and Justine Gibbon will be in one of the first grade classrooms this fall. Both are alumnae of the school, and both received their bachelor’s degree in early childhood education at Shippensburg University.

The Fairfield Area School District board hiked taxes and adopted the 2019-20 budget Monday.

The budget shows projected revenues of $18,578,267 with expenditures at $18,621,998.
