Easton Schools Lose Security Guards
The Easton Area School District has done away with security guards at its schools.

The Easton Area School District has done away with security guards, yet another casualty of a summer that saw more than 100 teachers and 50 staffers lose their jobs in the wake of closing a budget deficit.
Security guards at Cheston, Forks, Palmer, March, Shawnee, Tracy and Paxinosa elementary schools were eliminated as part of the Easton Area School District's layoffs for 2012-13, according to the Express-Times.
