Possible Layoffs For L.P.S.
The Lincoln Public School District is facing another frustrating budget year. School officials say they may have to lay off more than 100 teachers. L.P.S. must find a way to cut 8 million dollars from its budget. According to School Board Member Doug Evans, the budget proposal currently on the table accounts for 7 of the 8 million dollars in the form of teacher layoffs. Final decisions must be made soon. Anyone being laid off must be informed by April 15.
