Clinton Schools To Cut 11 Positions

Posted: Updated:


Whenever a school district is faced with budget cuts those cuts may lead to layoffs and that's the case with the Clinton school district.
The district needs to cut nearly one-million dollars from its budget. The Clinton superintendent says the district has gotten less state funding due to declining enrollment.
The district plans to eliminate 11 teacher and support staff positions.  

"With the cuts and the reductions that were made, it wasn't done without looking at student programming and student needs," Superintendent Deb Olson said. 'The reductions that will be made will have minimal impact on our kids."
The superintendent hopes to achieve the cuts through retirement and hiring freezes.
Officials say the decline in enrollment is due to people moving out of rural areas in search of work.
