Muskego looking at teacher layoffs due to declining enrollment

March 16, 2010

Four Muskego High School teachers could face full or partial layoffs next year, based on lower enrollment, the Muskego-Norway School Board learned Monday night. Because of lower enrollments in business education and technical education specifically, 1.4 full-time equivalent teachers may be laid off in business education and a full-time equivalent teacher in technical education. In addition, the physical education staff would be cut back by 0.8 of a full-time teacher.

These proposals will be brought back to the board at its March 29 meeting.

The administration also plans to reduce the elementary teaching positions by two full-time equivalent teachers because the schools are expecting 30 to 40 fewer elementary students this fall. But layoffs will not be needed because three elementary teachers plan to retire at the end of this year.
