The number of employees may be reduced due to a change in program, a change in the size or nature of the student population, or budgetary considerations. The Board will attempt to accomplish such a reduction through normal staff attrition, unless the best interests of the school district dictate otherwise.
In the event reduction of staff is necessary, seniority will be considered along with performance in determining employees who will be affected by either layoff or changes in position. Employees being terminated will be given a two-week notice.
Before a new employee is hired, a staff member whose employment has been suspended due to reduction in force will be given opportunity to return to work should the position be reinstated or other suitable vacancies open.
