"ld eliminate more than 200 jobs in the school system."
Superintendent Crawford Lewis is considering several options that could affect mid-level administrators to groundskeepers to drivers' education instructors.
Job cuts could come as early as soon as December, but it's unclear when the school board will act. The job cuts deliberately avoid elimination of teachers as well as other schoolhouse employees such as janitors and media specialists.
School board members told Lewis to reduce staff during budget talks this spring. Salaries and benefits make up 91 percent of the system's $894.1 million general operations budget. Lewis' goal is to reduce that to 86 percent.
