Fulton school board cuts 51 positions | News
ATLANTA -- The Fulton County school board has voted to eliminate 51 positions, including that of two area superintendents who are retiring, because of a reorganization in the district's central office.
Employees affected by Tuesday's school board decision will have to compete against outsiders and each other to be hired by June 30 for other positions in the district.
Officials say staff members in jobs being eliminated - including a language arts teacher, a math director and chief officer of operations - have been notified. The newspaper says several of the new jobs will support local principals and students.
School board vice chairwoman Linda Bryant says affected staffers are concerned. She says most of them will keep their job although they may have a different title.
