Woonsocket school board votes to send only 41 teacher layoff notices

February 13, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The School Committee on Wednesday voted unanimously to send layoff notices to 41 of the district’s 485 teachers, the number recommended by School Superintendent Giovanna Donoyan.
The move defied the recommendation of the state Budget Commission, the body in charge of balancing the city’s budget.
Donoyan told the committee she had received the Budget Commission request by telephone on Wednesday afternoon and did not have any additional information supporting it.
