RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Washoe County School District says that, due to sequestration, five special education teacher positions will be cut.
They released this statement:
“Due to sequestration, there will be impacts on the District budget, and some of those impacts will involve cutting the budget and reducing a total of five special education positions. However, services for students with autism are NOT being eliminated, and the needs of these students will still be addressed as we reorganize the department to accommodate the staffing changes. The situation is somewhat dynamic at this point, but even though our manpower is being impacted because of sequestration, students with autism will still receive the services they need from WCSD.”
News 4 has put a call in, asking how children with special needs will be served adequately when there are less teachers to care for them. We are still waiting for a call back.
