trackingCuts-web-600 [1]Add Vance County Schools to the list — they’ve had to cut eight teaching positions and 12 teacher assistant positions for 2013-14.

Terri Hedrick, Public Information Officer for VCS, reports:

  • Cut teaching positions by eight positions
  • Cut teacher assistant positions by 12 positions
  • No layoffs have occurred; through attrition the teacher assistants have been placed in other positions; we simply did not fill eight vacant teaching positions
  • We were cut $572,643 in state funds for teaching positions
  • We were cut $468,134 in state funds for teacher assistant positions
  • We were cut $105,212 in state funds for instructional support positions (placed in other positions, i.e., assistant principals/lead teachers)
  • We were cut $32,395 in state funds for classroom materials
  • Our total state budget cuts from last year to the new school year totaled $333,257
