May 15, 2012
Declining revenue, reorganization lead to reductions

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: The Atlanta school board has approved a plan to cut up to 475 jobs, including about 230 teachers, 90 custodians and 14 bus drivers and transportation staffers. Some of the layoffs are a result of a recent school redistricting, others because of declining revenue. Almost every department was asked to cut spending by 10 percent in order to accommodate a leaner proposed budget of $564.8 million.
