ALLENTOWN, Pa. - If the current budget proposal is approved, 132 teachers in the Allentown School District will lost their jobs.
In addition, 12 administrator positions will also be eliminated.
The layoffs were not unexpected, as the school board's finance committee-of-the-whole decided May 17 to raise taxes 8.53 percent and eliminate some positions.
According to paperwork provided by the school district, 61 positions will be lost at the elementary level, 27.5 in middle school and 43.5 between the two high schools, plus 12 administration jobs.
The budget must be approved, per state law, by June 30.
