I would like to know why in the 65 teachers cut next year because of budget problems there's not one district coordinator in that list, there's not one administrative service personnel or one administrator in that list?

Lawrence schools Supt. Randy Weseman said the district's coordinators were eliminated last year as part of an administrative staff realignment. He estimated the changes resulted in $550,000 in annual savings to the district. In this year's round of budget adjustments, administrative jobs with $200,000 in annual compensation were left vacant to reduce expenditures.

"The administration has taken close to $800,000 in cuts, by far the most of any entity in the district," Weseman said.
