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.
Read the complete story about the proposed reduction in force in Tuesday’s Post.
