Layoffs on the table in Lew-Port


Niagara Gazette — State-wide examinations could soon be switched to an online-only format and officials feel the district needs to do more to ensure when that happens, the students are not only prepared but also able to participate. This includes fully staffing the IEC’s computer labs by switching the responsibilities of one or more of the teachers already in the building.

“There’s a gap that exists,” Auer said. “I think it’s something we need to address. With online exams on the horizon, we need to look at this. I’m not proposing a new hire here, we’re looking at ways of shifting what we currently have.”
