More pink slips for Flint Community Schools employees

FLINT (WJRT) -

(04/16/14) - It's a painful, but necessary move for a shrinking school district.

The Flint School District just approved yet another round of pink slips.

The cuts made Wednesday night are part of a big picture plan to right size the district and reduce a multi-million dollar deficit.

This time, nearly 17 positions are on the bubble. However, some of the positions are currently vacant.

"The big picture for our school district, we have to right size the district and meet our deficit elimination plan and part of that is we have to restructure our entire district," said Interim Superintendent Larry Watkins

Watkins goes on to say, it's not certain all the employees, receiving pink slips, will lose their jobs.

The district has to give them 60 days notice.
