Giant City School will let go of seven teachers due to budget cuts in the next school year.
The cuts will also result in the loss of six teachers aides and a librarian.
Superintendent Belinda Hill says in a statement that a big drop in funding from the state is the primary factor in the cuts.
Hill says that they put a resolution to increase property taxes to raise revenue despite big cuts in funding from the state, but she is unsure if voters will approve the hike. She says more layoffs in the future could be possible.
Hill says she expects class sizes to increase by 60 percent at the school, and test scores will fall as a result.
