30 Teaching Positions to be Eliminated by New High School Scheduling Plan


30 or more high school teaching positions will be eliminated under a new high school scheduling plan adopted by the Springfield school board Monday night.

 

The new format keeps the seven-period day for students… giving them more opportunity to take electives.

 

But teachers who had been assigned five classes a day, with two periods for planning and “collaboration,” will now have to teach six classes a day.

 

As a result, fewer teachers will be needed and 10 or more jobs will be cut at each of the three high schools.

 

The move will save more than $1 million next year.
