LAKEWOOD-The besieged Lakewood school district suffered another blow this week after 140 public teachers and faculty members received a Rice notice regarding their future employment in the district.
The story was reported on the Lakewood Scoop this morning.
Laura A. Winters, the district Superintendent sent the letter on Tuesday, stating the district will be holding a meeting at 6:30pm on Monday, May 8 and, “will discuss and may recommend action(s) which may be of interest to you.”
Teachers may opt for the meeting to be held in a public meeting. Teachers were asked to sign the form and return it to the superintendent.
The district is facing a $15 million budget shortfall and may end up laying off at least 100 teachers according to previous reports.
