Superintendent Bryan Girbach said in the Leader the planned layoffs are based on classroom needs and are not expected to affect program offerings. The district also is waiting on staff evaluations to be completed before issuing the layoffs, the report said.
The board will vote on the layoffs at its June 11 meeting.
