Incline to lose teachers at middle school, high school levels
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. “-The Incline public schools will lose a few teacher and administration allocations as a result of dropping enrollment, Washoe County School District Deputy Superintendent Rick Harris announced last week.
The move is a response to a decreasing enrollment, not the district’s budget, Harris said.
Incline High School will lose 3.5 teacher allocations, Harris said, and its allocation for an assistant principal. In Truckee, similar proposals are in place to lay off dozens of teachers.
Incline Principal John Clark said it was unclear as of yet from which departments their teacher allocations would come.
“We have to look at the pre-registration to see what departments will have full classes and which will maybe not be as full, and that’s where we’ll cut,” Clark said.
He said once departments were identified, cuts would be made based on seniority within WCSD. Teachers must be notified by May 4 if they won’t return next year, Clark said.
