Saginaw Board of Education members have approved laying off more than 100 district employees.
The Saginaw News reports the board voted 5-2 Wednesday to approve the layoffs.
Human Resources employees will hand out notices to 118 employees, including 63 first- and second-year teachers, beginning Friday. The layoffs are effective Jan. 23, the last day of the semester.
The cutbacks could force some counselors, principals and others qualified to teach back to the classroom.
Others who could lose jobs include principals, central office administrators, secretaries, custodial and maintenance staff, classroom aides and bus drivers.
Budget forecasts suggest the district will have to cut $20 million over the next four years as the school system loses more students.

    You'd think teachers were needed in mich.Would think thoes jobs were safe.What good did their education do.Stay in mich one can expect job cuts in many fields.No job safe as more leave,close,or lay off. School funding will get cut sooner or later.No jobs to pay taxes or people working to pay taxes hurts a state or country bad.Guess where we are headed.
