TDCJ Windham schools facing cutbacks today
News spread like wildfire yesterday that as of 10 AM this morning, 75 or more Windham TDCJ school teachers would receive reduction if force (RIF) letters basically laying them off. This action comes after the Legislative session ended with lawmakers still unable to fill critical gaps in the budget. Windham, which is technically the largest school district in Texas, has stated that principals may also become involved in the reductions at some point as well. "The next few months will be critical for the district" said one Windham administrator. Lets hope it doesn't reach too far.
