More than 50 teachers within the Menomonee Falls School District will receive a preliminary layoff notification in the first part of April.
The Menomonee Falls School Board voted unanimously Monday night to send out 52 layoff notifications to staff. The board originally anticipated sending between 60 to 70 notices. A preliminary notification does not mean an employee will be laid off.
As middle school and high school students begin to select their classes and enrollment numbers become more exact, the number of layoff notifications was lowered and set at 52.
At the April 12 meeting, the board also anticipated that between seven to 12 full-time teachers would be laid off. School board member Gina Palazzari said the Personnel Committee, which met before the School Board Monday, is now anticipating less than eight full-time employee layoffs. Final layoff notifications will be sent out in June.
"We're just happy it's reduced," Palazzari said.
The district is facing declining enrollment and subsequently the revenue decreases. The need for staffing at North Middle School and Menomonee Falls High School is also decreasing.
"Our revenue limit is going down and our staffing need is going down because our enrollment is going down," said Superintendent Patricia Greco.
