HOOVER, AL - The Hoover Board of Education has approved a reduction in force for the next school year.

Board members met last night and voted unanimously to cut at least nine positions from the school district’s payroll. The positions will include administrative jobs, support staff and teachers.

Hoover City Schools Superintendent Andy Craig called the reduction in force a difficult decision. The school system has been addressing financial concerns for the past year.

Hoover City Schools to discontinue bus services

Last July, the board voted to end the district’s free transportation service in an effort to trim the budget. Board members said the move would save the district more than $2.5 million a year.

The school district then decided to offer the bus service for a fee. This prompted a protest from parents who were against the fees and questioned the legality of the decision.

Months later, the board decided to delay the fees until the 2015-2016 school year.

Parents were back out during last night’s regularly scheduled board meeting addressing their concerns about the board’s latest decision to cut jobs.

The school district has not yet said which specific jobs will be eliminated.
