Willmar, Minn., School District looks at cutting non-tenured staff


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School Board took action Monday to discontinue the equivalent of 50 non-tenured faculty positions, but many of the teachers affected are likely to be rehired next fall.

The action is an annual part of the district's budget planning process.

More than 50 full-time or part-time non-tenured faculty members will receive a letter from the board saying that the action was taken because of the financial condition of the district.
