The Durham Public Schools may eliminate 226 teaching positions to cope with a $17.8M loss in state and county funding next school year.
The anticipated revenue shortfall equals about 5.4 percent of the school system’s operating budget, staff writer Stan Chambers reports.
Additional cuts on the table include 81 teaching asisstants and 40 support personnel.
Hurd will present the proposed budget at tonight's monthly school board meeting at DPS' administrative building, 511 Cleveland St., at 6:30 p.m. School board members will discuss any possible budget revisions May 5 and are expected to approve the budget May 14. The Durham County Board of Cmmissioners will then have the final say on next year's budget.
