Some school employees are about to get the budget axe due to the recession.
The school board is scheduled to vote today on approving a reduction in force plan for the staff who oversee the construction program. Their jobs are on the line because of the slowdown in construction projects caused by the recession.
The idea is you need fewer of those folks if you have fewer bond-funded construction projects to oversee.
Reductions in force could spread to other employees once the state budget is adopted.
