The Mesa Unified School District governing board was expected to vote Tuesday night on the rehiring of classified staff in the district. Classified staff includes secretaries, instructional aides, clerks, custodians and more.
According to the agenda, about 43 positions could be cut through a "reduction in personnel," many of them a result of changes the district governing board approved in January to address declining enrollment and revenue, said Superintendent Mike Cowan.
Other employees with one-year-only contracts were on the list not to be rehired, but many could be offered jobs later in the summer as funding sources are identified and available. "This is an annual process," he said.
