Hundreds of teachers, teacher assistants, and other school employees in Duplin County who thought they were out of jobs will have work next school year after all.
In May, the Duplin County School Board said it was forced to cut 210 positions in anticipation of a $5 million budget shortfall. Friday the school board voted unanimously to bring back the majority of employees after the chief financial officer said the passage of the state budget allowed more funding than expected. 130 teachers and assistants, and 80 clerical and janitorial employees were affected and will notified Monday that many of them have their jobs back.
