The job cutbacks are at the schools that are slated for closure or overhaul.

About 850 teachers and staff members at Chicago public schools slated for closure or overhaul have received layoff notices. The Chicago Sun-Times says that at the 48 closing schools, 420 teachers lost their jobs, as well as 110 paraprofessionals and 133 bus aides and part-timers. At the five schools headed for “turnaround,” where the students continue to attend classes in the building but all the adults are replaced, 192 staffers were laid off: 125 teachers, 20 paraprofessionals, 20 bus aides and part-timers and 27 clerks, custodians and security staffers. The laid-off teachers did not have either tenure or high-enough performance ratings to be considered for available jobs in the schools receiving transferred students.
