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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
