I just found out today that my district is cutting 56 teachers next year. As a 2nd year teacher, I don't have tenure yet. I also have a really small case load at 6 projected students. I mean, 56 teachers. It's like they went through a list and said, "Okay we can cut that one, and that one.... and that one..." I mean, what an odd number. It's like they have all their cuts ready to go, and instead of telling us WHO, they've just announced "56 cuts." So now we get to wait. And I'm not sure when pink slips come out. Dang. Just when I was thinking I was getting somewhere and finally found a great spot. Who else would they cut? I'm thinking sped would get cut first.
