School Budget Cuts Spark Protest

LAUREL, DE – Students at Laurel High School staged a protest Friday to oppose personnel cuts in the district.  Fifteen teacher, two secretaries, six custodians, and twelve paraprofessionals were notified Friday that they would not be employed by the Laurel School District next year.  The reduction-in-force was made necessary by a $650,000 shortfall in the district’s budget.  The fifteen teachers represent 8.7% of the districts total teaching force.
