JoAnne Hilton-Gabeler's position as director of curriculum and instruction for the Steamboat Springs School District was eliminated in the proposed 2009-10 budget.
Superintendent Shalee Cunningham said the position was eliminated strictly for financial purposes.
Hilton-Gabeler will become the superintendent of the Aguilar RE-6 School District in southern Colorado in July, she said in an e-mail. She joined the Steamboat Springs School District two years ago.
Cunningham said she, school principals and Instructional Support Services will perform curriculum duties.
Cutting the position will save the district more than $111,000 next year. Cunningham said there were no immediate plans to replace Hilton-Gabeler but that the position may come back in the future depending on budgets.
