Stan Winborne of Granville County Schools reported to NC Policy Watch that they have had to eliminate 35 positions for 2013-14, although no one had to be laid off. They have also tried their best to reduce the negative impact on their students in the classroom.
The eliminated positions include:
4 Administrative positions
15 Instructional Support positions
8 Classroom Teacher positions
4 Classroom Teacher positions eliminated but services maintained through other means
4 Classroom Teacher positions planned but not filled
These cuts equal approximately $1.75 million dollars for the 2013-2014 school year.
