KENOSHA (WKOW) -- The Kenosha Unified School District plans to cut more than 250 teachers. They are trying to close a $28 million dollar budget shortfall for next year.
On Tuesday, the district says it expects 209 layoffs, 21 retirements and 23 jobs to be reduced through non-renewal of one-year appointments. Eight administrators and 13 secretaries will be eliminated.
The deadline for the layoffs is May 1. District spokesman Gary Vaillancourt says there could still be minor changes.
The layoffs and reductions amount to $15 million dollars. In order to reach their budget goal the Unified School District says they will close a middle school and reduce school operating budgets.
Vaillancourt says they are still looking for ways to cut another $3 million dollars.
