From The Philadelphia Inquirer: The Philadelphia School District plans to cut 240 positions from central administration offices. Because some of the posts are vacant, district officials could not say how many staffers would lose their jobs. In addition, the district is reorganizing administrative departments and has ordered a 30 percent cut in those budgets. The elimination of 240 jobs amounts to 30 percent of the 800 positions at headquarters paid from the operating budget. Grants fund an additional 200.
