Charleston County school officials say they will eliminate 70 jobs for the coming school year in order to deal with budget cuts.
The school district said Monday that the reductions will save more than $2 million.
The jobs being eliminated include 24 instructional coordinators who work as curriculum coaches for teachers. Nineteen mechanics are also being laid off. Other jobs being eliminated include secretaries, technicians and an associate superintendent.
Chief Financial Officer Mike Bobby says district leaders worked to find other jobs for the 70 employees and were able to make offers to most of the employees.
