Ann Arbor schools to cut more than 60 full-time teaching positions
The Ann Arbor school board passed its budget last night which eliminated teaching positions.
Kyle Feldscher from Annarbor.com reports:
Trustees passed the $183 million budget by a 5-2 vote, filling a deficit that eventually grew to about $16 million. The budget originally included the elimination of high school transportation and 70 full-time teacher positions. The final budget passed Wednesday included high school transportation and eliminated 62.3 full-time teacher positions.
Feldscher reports that teacher layoffs are not expected:
The budget includes no layoffs of full-time teachers, with all of the position reductions coming through attrition and negotiations with the Ann Arbor Education Association.
