    I see the Personnel Committee is recommending the elimination of 6 positions. Are these teaching positions? My child attends Indian Rock and those classes are already at the max capacity set by the board. I am concerned that if these positions are teaching positions our classrooms will go over guidelines. Can you address whether or not these are teaching positions and if so, what schools will be affected?
