Auburn school district approves job cuts

The Auburn Enlarged City School District Board of Education approved some long-promised job cuts Tuesday night.

The board finalized the abolishment of 11 teacher aide positions effective by the end of June 22. Those aides will be placed on a preferred eligibility list for three years.

Thirteen aides and one teaching assistant had earlier been announced to be cut. Lisa Green, the district’s school business executive, said two other aides announced their retirements, allowing two aides whose positions were being cut to take those spots. The teaching assistant position will be cut at a future board meeting.

A total of 28 positions were set to be removed. The positions were 15 teacher aides, five general education elementary teachers, five elementary special education teachers, one high school social studies teacher, one elementary music teacher and one teaching assistant.

The district cut positions with incoming retirements to save jobs in the wake of the its $3.8 million budget deficit. The $75 million budget for the 2018-2019 school year was approved by community members May 15.
