Levy County Teachers May Be Losing Jobs
As the end of the school year approaches, some North Central Florida teachers have been finding out they won't be returning. At the Levy County School District the number of teachers is going down because student enrollment is down.
Thursday marked the deadline for Levy County School Board officials to notify all annual teachers if their contracts would be renewed. In March, 21 teachers were sent non-renewal notices. A few weeks later, more teachers received them as well.
Officials with the Levy County Education Association said they hadn't gotten the exact number of notices mailed out by Thursday's deadline, but they have heard some projected numbers.
"I'm hearing that there's at least a couple at every school," said LCEA President Cindy Roach. "That's an estimate because of course people are embarrassed a lot that are being non-renewed so they don't really make that public."
Roach said third-year teachers on annual contracts did not receive multi-year contracts this year. Instead they have received a one-year extension, and after next year they could be let go.
