Caney, OK Schools to Layoff Eight

Posted: Updated:

CANEY, OK -- Confirmation came Tuesday that eight Caney School employees will soon receive certified letters notifying them that their positions are being eliminated.

Facing a $600,00 budget shortfall due to a cut in state funding, the school board decided to move forward with the layoffs.  If the employees wish, they can appeal the layoff directly to the school board during a special meeting on October 28th.  The board will then decide whether to go through with the layoffs.  The next regular school board meeting is scheduled for November 8th.
