Efficiency study calls for job cuts in Richland 2

Apr 15, 2011 12:18:00 AM - thestate.com
A study commissioned by the Richland 2 school superintendent recommends eliminating about 140 positions, including 47 assistant principal and school administrator posts, streamlining curriculum and implementing other changes that could reap upward of $57 million in savings over the next five years.

Results of the $150,000 efficiency and effectiveness study were unveiled Thursday, as the Richland 2 school board met to discuss the proposed 2011-12 budget.

Superintendent Katie Brochu acknowledged the 441-page study by Tallahassee-based Evergreen Solutions has prompted uncertainty and fear among district employees worried about their jobs if the board decides to implement any of the recommendations.

“I wish I could wave the magic dust to allay the fears,” Brochu, hired last July, said Wednesday during a briefing on the report.

But Brochu said she is convinced that taking a hard look at the district’s operations will result in moving the district “to the next level” of academic success.
