With thousands of dollars reduced from the district’s school security budget, school board members on Wednesday evening raised questions about the impact it will have in the next school year.
City teachers must make-up six days of school due to the large number of snow closings this year; students must make-up five days.
In a memorandum issued to high ranking district officials, Donnie Evans, district superintendent, declared the city’s school district is imposing a hiring freeze. “As previously communicated by me, our district must make serious adjustments to live within our means,” read the memo issued by Evans on Wednesday.
A quarter of the staff members working at 90 Delaware Avenue, public school district office, will be cut by June 2014, said Donnie Evans, the state-appointed superintendent for the district.
