LAKEWOOD-The Lakewood School District held a four hour budget meeting on Monday and decided to not lay off over 100 school teachers, but today, the Lakewood Scoop is reporting that the state installed monitor did layoff those employees.
According to the report, all 140 teachers and faculty who received notices last week were laid off today.
State monitor David Shafter called the board’s decision irresponsible and said that without funding the teachers should go. The proposed budget by the board of education left the district with a $14.7 million shortfall.
