Atlanta School System Reorganizes Positions
ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A spokesperson for Atlanta Public Schools say that 64 employees at the main office recently learned positions in finance, human resources, and communications are being either eliminated or reclassified.
School system officials say the changes are meant to save money and help schools by moving support staff into the schools.
APS also plans to add63 new positions and those employees who were displaced when their jobs were eliminated, will get priority consideration for new positions for which they are qualified.
Authorities say the reorganization is expected to save the district $500,000.
