The Cabell County Board of Education will consider several personnel layoffs and transfers at a special meeting.

The Herald-Dispatch reports board members will vote Tuesday on a list of 48 reductions in force, or RIFs, and over 55 transfers of professional personnel.

These RIFs and transfers stem from an expected loss of over $800,000 in state funding for professional personnel for the 2016-17 fiscal year, which begins July 1.

The proposed budget was first released at a meeting Feb. 2.

During that meeting, Todd Alexander, assistant superintendent of leadership for Cabell County Schools, said they were already in the process of notifying people that would be let go or transferred for the upcoming school year.

Board members also will vote on 14 transfers and 13 RIFs for service personnel.
