Ohio school board delays dozens of scheduled layoffs




DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio school board has delayed about 40 scheduled layoffs to classroom aides, building trades workers and others until at least next month.

The Dayton Board of Education on Thursday delayed scheduled layoffs and position removals until Dec. 6 after 20 administrators were laid off earlier this month.

Board member John McManus was voted president pro tem after board president Adil Baguirov left mid-meeting. McManus made the motion to postpone the layoffs.

Baguirov said later he supported the delay. Board member Ron Lee says the district staff must still be resized.

Jim Tackett, who represents paraprofessionals, clerical workers and others with the Ohio Association of Public School Employees, said the weeks of displacement letters and staff switches have been disruptive.

The layoffs come amid declining enrollment in the district.
