Nearly a dozen teaching positions will be cut next year after the Clark County Board of Education approved a staffing plan at Tuesday's meeting.
Nineteen staff positions and 10.6 teaching positions were eliminated for the 2007-2008 school year to alleviate the district's financial crunch.
A staffing allocation formula for the district showed that there are 20.8 more staff members currently employed than the 267 needed.
After talking to building administrators, Superintendent Ed Musgrove decided that only 10.8 positions could be cut without adversely affecting students.
Central, Fannie Bush, Hannah McClure, Providence and Strode Station elementary schools will each lose one teacher. Clark Middle will lose three, and George Rogers Clark High School will lose 2.62.
The other 19 staff cuts include 12.5 special needs instructional assistants. Before the vote, Susan Stoneking, a special education teacher at GRC, asked the board to keep special needs instructional assistants in the classroom.
