Axe falling on Little Rock School District jobs

Posted By on Sun, Apr 5, 2015 at 7:29 AM

Word is filtering in of dismissal notices being sent to Little Rock School District administrators.

Interim Superintendent Dexter Suggs said last week that as many as 60 jobs would be cut for the next school year to reduce administrative spending by $3.5 million as the district prepares for the loss of some $37 million a year in state desegregation aid by the 2017-18 school year.

I"ve made an FOI request for those who'll be fired at the end of this year.

One unconfirmed report lists four high-profile long-term administrators. Six principals are reportedly on the initial list, too.

More when I have it. Or, if you do, pass the info along here.
