The email outlined the need to Institute a RIF plan to keep the school system fiscally sound to serve the children of our community. The drastic reduction in funding to the school system over the last 10 years by the state was cited as one of the major reasons a RIF plan was necessary. "I know that this process has been difficult for all of our personnel in our system," Dr. McDaniel wrote. " It is our hope that making the hard decisions as early as possible this year will help those impacted prepare for the next school year."
The email also emphasized the need to proceed with the implementation of the RIF plan professionally and with courtesy toward system employees. "No one included in the plan should find out through a news story in the newspaper or on social media," Dr. McDaniel wrote. "I will continue to work toward that goal this week."
