Caddo Parish School Board Budget

Posted: Updated:
Caddo Parish -


 Another 105 positions are on the chopping block when Caddo Parish School Board adopts its $472 million budget Tuesday.

The plan will eliminate 86 special education teachers, administrators and aides as well as eight reading specialist teachers at low-performing schools, and 11 Central Office secretaries and administrators.

Chief Financial Officer Jim Lee says the cuts will not cause a layoff and will be handled through attrition.

The budget also does away with money for teacher supplies and reduces substitute teachers.

The cuts follow 107 teaching positions the board voted to eliminate last month.

The hardest hit will be high schools, which are estimated to lose 69 teaching slots and will require remaining teachers to teach an additional class.
