PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - Autauga County School Board officials made a difficult decision Tuesday night voting to issue pink slips to 71 school employees.
The Autauga County Board of Education approved a reduction plan that forces 37 teachers and 34 support staff out of a job.
All but four of the county's 12 schools lost at least on teacher.
Friday is the deadline to notify staff of non-renewals. It is not clear if the 71 cuts are the ones that will be made.
In addition to the 71 eliminated positions, 19 other employees resigned and eight opted for retirement.
