BI schools may cut 12 teachers

As I reported here (in yesterday’s Sun), the Bainbridge Island School District may cut 18 certified positions – including 12 teachers – for the next school year.

“These kinds of cuts are devastating for a school district of our size,” school board President Mary Curtis said.

The proposed certified staff cuts is on top of possible reductions for classified staff (custodians, groundskeepers, etc.) I noted in a previous blog post.

The district will hold a public meeting on the cuts tomorrow (Thursday), 7 p.m., at Bainbridge High School.
