180+ Jobs on the Line at Baldwin Schools

Jobs in the Baldwin County Public School System are once again on the line. Up to 180 school support personnel may be cut to help cover a $14 million budget shortfall within the school system.

After two rounds of proration and falling tax revenues, officials say they do not have anything to cut but positions.

The idea of a one cent sales tax increase has been taken off the table. Officials say the public did not seem to be in favor of a new tax right now.

Cafeteria workers and custodians are among the support positions that could now be cut, but that will only make up $7 million.

The other $7 million would have to come from cuts in tenured positions.
