Canfield schools to announce staff cuts


School board members met in executive session Tuesday to discuss some tough decisions they’re facing.

Superintendent Dante Zambrini said the board will have to decide among three options on the November election: Putting on an operational levy of the same millage as the May levy, putting on a levy of a different millage or not filing for the November election.

Treasurer Pattie Kesner said she would know of the filing deadlines for that election by today.

“November is a very critical point because if a levy doesn’t pass then, there will be no new revenue for 2012,” Zambrini said. “The board has to study what impact that would have.”

They’ll also have to decide which positions would be eliminated as part of phase two cuts for the district following last week’s levy vote.

“Now we have to put names to positions,” Zambrini said.

Those teachers and classified staff will learn of the layoffs before June 30, when the teachers’ contracts end.
