Revere Uses Web Site to Answer Questions About Teacher Cuts
District adds FAQ to explain 34 teacher layoffs.
After last week’s board meeting Revere laid off 34 teachers for the next school year in case a pending tax levy fails to pass. The district has set up a section on its Web site to try to answer questions and concerns of the public.
The district's site documents the process, including the budgetary reasons behind the cuts and what procedure will be used for callbacks -- if the levy passes or other teachers retire and/or leave the district before next school year.
An item on administrative contracts at Revere that was tabled last meeting will be taken up when the board meets at 7:30 a.m. Friday in the Administration Building, 3496 Everett Road, Richfield.
The contracts were tabled because some board members wanted to study the agreements before voting on them. Superintendent Randy Boroff said it was the same contracts the district has been using for years.
Boroff said all salaries are being frozen. Two administrative positions were moved into half time in a separate agenda item.
