Flint School Board Approves Over 90 Layoffs [Video]

At its Monday night meeting, the Flint School Board approved 91 layoffs to teachers and staff as part of its deficit elimination plan.

According to WNEM, the district expects roughly $8 million in revenue to cover costs for the 2014-15 school year. Interim superintendent Larry Watkins says that amount isn’t enough as the district must keep its spending in check to meet the requirements set by the state to eliminate a $10 million deficit.

Also at the meeting, the board approved a new teacher’s contract just ratified last week. It includes cuts to health benefits and sick days instead of a nearly 20 percent pay cut. Those changes will help the district save more than $6 million.
