CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Public School District's proposed budget cuts could leave 70 administrators, including dozens of principals and assistant principals, without their jobs if a budget agreement is not reached Wednesday.
"Despite our great improvements in student achievement and being fiscally responsible we continue to experience losses in revenue that could undermine all of our gains," Superintendent Mary Ronan stated in a letter dated March 1.
The notification stated contracts that expire on July 31, 2013, will not be renewed. Of the 70 administrators, close to half are principals and assistant principals.
Spokesperson Janet Walsh tells 9 On Your Side the layoffs are because of a $54 million shortfall in the district's budget.
A budget development presentation was scheduled before the Cincinnati Board of Education's Committee of the Whole at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
