(CENTREVILLE) – Citing budget issues, the Centreville School Board unanimously approved cutting seven teacher positions during their meeting Monday.

According to WWMT, over 150 people attended the Centreville School Board meeting, trying to convince Board members to not cut these teachers. The seven instructors being released are Meredith Bunning, Jan Modert, Jerome Wolff and Bart Schrader from Centreville Elementary; and Andrea Justus, Cassie Hartsell-Conrod and Brian McDaniel at Centreville Jr./Sr. High.

Centreville Superintendent Rob Kuhlman says in the last two years, the District has lost 100 students and approximately $700,000 in state aid. He says the loss of the students is tied to the aging population and the decline in the local job base in Centreville.

The School Board explained to the audience that the cuts were made based on teacher evaluations. In the case of a tie, tenure decided who would stay and who would go.

Kuhlman says if enrollment is up in the fall, they will be calling teachers back to work.

Kulhman, who also serves as the Mendon Schools Superintendent, says the Mendon School Board will be discussing teacher layoffs at their meeting tonight.
