Today was not a happy one at Laurel High School as many received pink slips in an effort to trim the estimated $650,000 deficet.
Unoffically at North Laurel 7 teaching positions were slashed; I do not have numbers for other schools.
The support stff had 20 RIFS, 13 were paras but of those 10 could posssibly return because they are one-on-ones and if their student remains in Laurel that para will return to be with their student.
Five custodians and one mainenance person was cut. Two secretaries were also cut.
Guess what: NO ADMINISTRATORS WERE CUT. Moral of the story; get out of teaching, become an administrator for job security.
