In Manchester, the city School Board has approved a plan by the superintendent to lay off 14 school district employees.
The positions to be eliminated all come from Manchester high schools and include an English teacher, a Latin teacher, and a P.E. teacher.
Superintendent Bolgen Vargas says the layoffs are a direct result of declining enrollment in the Manchester School District – that trend has been steady over the last decade.
With fewer students, the district gets less money from the state. Vargas says stopping that decline is one of his major priorities.
