Buena Vista board approves layoffs

BUENA VISTA (WKZO) --The Buena Vista School district will lay off 20 teachers and staff this week.

During a special meeting on Tuesday, the district’s Board of Education approved the terminations.  According to school officials, the reason for the cuts is due to the fact that as of July 5th, the district will have just two-thousand dollars in the bank and won’t receive any state aid payments until October.

Teacher layoffs will be effective at the end of the day today and the last day for administrative staff will be Friday, leaving the district with just three employees after June 28th.
