Mitchell County - Fourteen Mitchell County School employees could lose their jobs because of state budget cuts.
These eliminations would add to the already 22 positions that are vacant because of retirements and resignations. This would make 36 vacancies for the next school year.
Mitchell County Board of Education members are trying to decide how to balance the budget and continue with less teachers. Board member, Robert McDaniel, says, "One choice is to raise the millage rate to accommodate, keeping some of these positions available. The other is to balance the budget and eliminate these positions."
Board members hope to vote on the proposed budget after legislation ends. Mitchell County School system is expected to lose $844,000 from state funds.
