ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Officials say about 170 teachers have been notified that their contracts have not been renewed for next school year in Clayton County, one of several Georgia school systems struggling with budget woes.

School board members meeting this week say they want more information on planned cuts in the district’s Career Technical and Agricultural Education program.

Officials say about 20 of the 170 teachers whose contracts haven’t been renewed are in the technical program. The planned cuts come four months after Gov. Nathan Deal launched Go Build Georgia, an initiative to create more skilled trade and technical workers by beefing up training programs in Georgia’s secondary schools.

School board Chairwoman Pam Adamson says the board could still reverse the decision not to renew teachers’ contracts.
