PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area School Board voted to approve the general fund budget without a tax increase at its Tuesday meeting. 

In a surprise move, the board also hired Jeff Long, high school principal, as school psychologist, a position he held before his current one. 

Long will be paid the Master’s Step 16 rate plus 36 additional days plus the psychologist stipend, effective on a date to be determined. Long’s actual salary was not revealed at the meeting.
