Meeting on MPS personnel cuts rescheduled

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A meeting that was called by the Montgomery County Board of Education to discuss employee reductions will not take place Monday as was scheduled.

The Board decided to push the special meeting back to March 8. The new meeting time is scheduled for 5:15pm on March 8 at Bellingrath Middle School. It will be immediately followed by the Committee of the Whole meeting.

Board members say the new date gives district staff more time to evaluate personnel cuts to Central Office and school-based personnel.

The Board voted Thursday in a 6-1 decision on a school consolidation and rezoning plan that will end with layoffs and the closure of eight schools.
