Teacher layoffs likely for Akron schools
Not enough Akron teachers opted for early retirement, so the district likely will lay off up to 100 educators. Just 49 people signed up for the buyout offer by yesterday's deadline.
District officials had said the offer would be withdrawn if at least 135 didn't take advantage of it. The exact number of layoffs won't be known until July Tenth, the deadline for teachers to retire or resign.
