Kannapolis schools face job cuts after shortfall
KANNAPOLIS — Jobs could be on the line in the Kannapolis City School system as the district looks to fill a $2.1 million shortfall.
The Board of Education will receive a list of proposed cuts tonight during its monthly meeting.
During a Board of Education budget work session last month, Annie Laura Pickett, the school system’s personnel administrator, gave some raw figures regarding cuts.
About 42 percent of administrators, both school-based and in the central office, could be affected.
Fourteen of the 33 administrators could either lose their jobs or face reduced pay from new schedules.
Twenty-three of 434 teaching positions, or 5.3 percent, are on the line.
Noncertified personnel, which includes teacher assistants and clerical support, would take about a 10 percent cut with the elimination of 33 jobs.
Noncertified staff is also expected to see reductions of 26.1 percents, affecting 85 employees.
