PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The Highlands school board voted Monday night to increase taxes by 3.5 percent, furlough 26 employees, including seven teachers and reconfigure some schools.

The board is responding to higher expenses for pensions, charter schools and special education.

The Tribune-Review reports there was strong opposition from the community. The board voted unanimously last week to borrow up to nearly $11.5 million.
