28 teachers in the Redmond School District will be laid off next year to balance the budget. The School Board has been struggling with balancing an $8-million shortfall. School Board Chair Jim Erickson says the affected teachers know. “They have been notified. Most of the 28 are early retirement, part time people who didn't have the expectation they would have a job. But there are eight people who are not temporary or retiring and for these eight people notification has been made.” The School Board wanted to notify the affected teachers as soon as possible, so they could make plans.
