trackingCuts-web-600 [1]Asheville City Schools reported to NC Policy Watch that they lost funding for 13 teacher assistant teacher positions for 2013-14.

The school system was able to find local funds for 3.5 of those teacher assistant jobs, but ultimately had to eliminate 9.5 positions.

“We hope to restore those [eliminated positions] as soon as possible…we are scrubbing our budget to look for savings,” said Charlie Glazener, ACS’ Executive Director for Community Relations.
