Proposed Richmond County school budget calls for cutting 135 jobs | The Augusta Chronicle

The Richmond County school system could resort to eliminating teachers, custodians and other employees to help make up a $23 million shortfall in next year’s budget.

A proposed budget presented to the Board of Education on Tuesday calls for cutting 75 teachers, 22 paraprofessionals, 30 custodians, an assistant principal, two guidance counselors and four clerical positions and reducing one nurse to part time.

Some of the 135 employees cuts would come by leaving open vacancies that were created from retirements, resignations and other attrition.

At Tuesday’s meeting, however, staffers could not estimate the number of layoffs needed to achieve the proposed $6.2 million in savings.
