BAKER - Incoming Superintendent Herman Brister Sr. says laying off some non-tenured teachers is part of a plan to save $1.2 million for the Baker School District.

Brister released his plan at Tuesday night's school board meeting. He says his goal is to present a balanced budget.

Brister says some of the schools are overstaffed and a few non-tenured teachers would be laid off before the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, but he could not confirm how many would be eliminated.

The proposed layoffs are part of a belt-tightening plan outlined by finance director Sidney Stewart.

She says the plan also calls for not filling vacant positions, adjusting staff hours and responsibilities, and changing some of the educational software.
