The Lafourche Parish School Board approved sweeping layoffs, and up to 120 employees will lose their job.

The cuts will affect 98 full-time and 22 part-time positions, including 65 classroom teachers, six office administrators and dozens of support staffers such as cafeteria workers, janitors and
bus drivers.

Other moneysaving moves include increasing the price of school lunches and cutting money provided to individual schools and the system's highly praised music program.

The budget cuts are being made to offset a $7.1 million shortfall predicted for the fiscal year that starts July 1.
