Flint Schools Plan to Outsource More Jobs in Attempt to Cut Budget [Video]

A plan to outsource more jobs is the latest attempt by Flint Community Schools in its attempt to cut a budget deficit of more than $20 million.

According to ABC 12, starting next school year, substitute teachers, tech works, safety advocates and even athletic coaches will be hired by outside companies. The decision to outsource 150 jobs was made at Wednesday night’s school board meeting.

One the plan is approved by the state, for instructional staffing, Flint Schools will work with Professional Educational Services Group in Burton. For non-instructional services, Flint Schools will work with Educational Staffing Resources based in Grand Rapids. The district plans to sign one-year contracts with both companies to see how things work out.

The financially troubled district has until the end of the month to submit a revised budget deficit elimination plan to the state.
