FLORIDA - An Orange County assistant principal's job was saved Wednesday thanks to her community, but with a catch.

Susan Moore's job was on the line after a budget vote in the Florida Union Free School District. The school district was seeking to fill a $174,000 budget gap.

Moore has spent 13 years at the middle-high school, serving nearly 500 students.

Hundreds filled the S.S. Seward Institute auditorium, urging the school board to reconsider.

After hearing from dozens of concerned voices, the board overturned its decision but says Moore will serve the school 10 months out of the year instead of 12.

The school board still has to look for other ways to close the budget gap and did not disclose if other staff positions would be eliminated.
