AUSTIN (KXAN) — A leader from the Austin Independent School District warned that lower enrollment and decreased daily attendance numbers could result in a funding loss of almost $50 million.
The district’s chief business officer said Tuesday night that if enrollment does not improve, the district could lay off an estimated 232 teachers and staff members.
In a video lasting less than five minutes, Will DuPree discusses that development as well as these other stories in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:
