Teacher Layoffs

Knox county schools officials say they will likely be laying off teachers later this year.
Officials say it's due to a tight budget... which they say is a result of several factors like overstaffing, a declining student population and mandated state raises.
School officials say they will be notifying non-tenured teachers this month and will make a final decision about layoffs this summer.
