Fairbanks North Star Borough School District will be sending out layoff warnings

The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District will be sending out letters to approximately 80 teachers tomorrow and Thursday stating that they may be laid off.

 Schools Superintendent Pete Lewis sent an email today to district employees stating that the letters are a result of a funding shortfall.

The letters are coined, “doubtful status” not actual terminations.

Until a precise budget is made, the cuts could be made and the letters are precautionary.

District Officials presented their budget to the Borough Assembly last week and will be voted on next month.
