Southern Illinois School District Announces Layoffs
The move agreed upon Wednesday by the Giant City School District 130 board affects seven teaching positions, six support staffers and the school librarian for the next school year. The district in recent years has eliminated its art program, increased fees for participation in extra-curricular activities and put energy-saving initiatives in place.
The school board last month signed off on asking voters to approve a property tax increase.
