One at One: School Staffing & the Economy

  • One at One: School Staffing & the Economy

Today’s Issue:

Can a board of education reduce staff for economic reasons?


Yes. Boards of education can reduce the number of teaching staff members, employed in the district for reasons of economy, reduction in the number of pupils, or due to change in the administrative or supervisory organization of the district, or for other good cause. However, tenure/seniority rights apply to certified staff who have been subject to a reduction in force.
