Flint school district lays off 21, recalls 51 staff

Continued budget adjustments in the Flint school district is resulting in nearly two dozen more layoffs.

Flint Schools spokesperson, Bob Campbell, told NBC25 the board voted 7-1 Wednesday to lay off 21 staff members. About half of them are non-teaching staff members.

The board also recalled 50 teachers and an assistant principal, based on what Campbell said was a clearer picture of the financial outlook.

Some of those recalls were attributed to retiring teachers.

Earlier this month, 75 non-teaching staff were laid off, and in May, the board approved the layoffs of more than 130 teachers.

The district faces a $15.6 million deficit.
