Teachers Contracts May be Renewed
After months of being told they would be out of work next year, hundreds of Marion County teachers could have good news coming their way.
Federal stimulus money may make it possible for the district to hire back more than 500 teachers.
Superintendent Jim Yancey is more optimistic than he's been in awhile, But points out that even if teacher's are hired back for next year the federal stimulus money is only for that year.
Come the year after next, they could be laid off again.
Marion County Superintendent of Schools Jim Yancey says,
"A year from now and specifically two years from now, it doesn't appear that were working on a plan that will change our revenue stream for the state of Florida."
Marion County hopes to receive 32 million in stimulus funds.
As of now, 13 million schools can't even qualify for unless a waiver is signed by the state.
That's because over the last few years the state of Florida hasn't contributed enough funding towards education.
