Teachers among those being laid off at area school system
ST. FRANCISVILLE- A number of West Feliciana Parish School System employees were told Tuesday, they were being laid off.
Eighteen workers, mostly teachers, were told their terminations were due to a lack of money and a drop in enrollment.
In March, Superintendent Hollis Milton sent a reduction in force letter to system employees.
The system is trying to fill a $1.5 million hole in the budget.
Previously, salaries were frozen and administrators took a pay cut.
