MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Layoff notices are going out to nearly 30 teachers in Marshall County that they will not be renewed for work next year.

Typically, most of non-tenured teachers are hired back, but the ending of a grant and a dwindling enrollment are making most of these cuts permanent.

Pink slips went out on Thursday to 28 teachers in the Marshall County School system.

Asbury school was one of the hardest hit.

Superintendent Tim Nabors said a teacher grant has run out, but there has also been a loss in state funds due to lower enrollment numbers.

What programs will be affected is still up in the air, but Nabors said teachers will be transferred to make the system work.

He said bigger classrooms and teachers split between schools is likely but will do what they have to in order to give the children the best education possible.

Nabors said they anticipate they will know how the cuts will affect the programs sometime this summer.
