Monroe County Community School Corporation administrators say they don’t anticipate any layoffs next school year. But while Assistant Superintendent of Personnel Peggy Chambers doesn’t expect that anyone will be on the reduction in force list for next school year, there are some changes planned.
“We have a couple of elementary [schools] where we’ll actually be moving a teacher, but we have four elementary where we’ll be adding staff. So that’s just a change based on enrollment,” she says.
Richland-Bean Blossom School Corporation officials say they do expect layoffs in the coming years, but MCCSC hopes to move staff to compensate for rising student-to-teacher ratios. State law mandates that any staff being laid off be notified by July 1.
