Dayton Public Schools Could See Administrative Staff Cuts
The new superintendent of Dayton Public Schools is moving forward with plans to cut administrative staff. Superintendent Rhonda Corr says the cuts are due to enrollment numbers in the district – they’re declining.
Data from the Ohio Department of Education shows student attendance has dropped by about 3,000 students over the last nine years. Corr says there are not enough students to justify the number of people on the payroll.
The cuts will mainly affect staff at the district’s central office, but additional teachers and staff layoffs have not been ruled out.
At last night’s Board of Education meeting, members voted to allow the superintendent to move forward with reduction plans. The Board is set to vote on Corr’s specific recommendations at the November 17th meeting.
