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.
