CPS plans to hand out about 1,000 layoff notices

June 27, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The layoffs include the annual reduction in teaching staff because of school closings and enrollment declines.

They also include budget cuts to about 150 supplemental teaching positions.

Those positions are held by non-classroom teachers who have a variety of roles, including pulling aside students for extra help in reading or math.

Many laid-off teachers are typically rehired.
