School district not renewing contracts of teachers, staff

COLUMBUS — The Columbus Municipal School District will not renew the contracts of 59 teachers and support staff.

Interim superintendent Dr. Martha Liddell says personnel cuts and other reductions will save the district $3.4 million.

Officials say about $2.1 million in savings coming from eliminating 54 teachers. Three counselors, a coach and an administrator were also terminated.

Board president Glenn Lautzenhiser says those affected were notified as soon as possible so they would have time to seek employment elsewhere.

Liddell says there is a chance 21 positions may be restored this summer, primarily in secondary and special education.
