The reduction in force facing Calhoun teachers and service personnel is small compared to last year, according to Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Ron Blankenship. Blankenship said he will be meeting with the affected individuals this week, with the reduction and transfers being approved by the Board of Education at their March 4 meeting.

Five teachers and one service person will be cut, said Blankenship, although some anticipated funding may restore some of those positions. Two other individuals, both teachers, will be transferred to be in compliance.

"Calhoun is down only 29 students from last year," said Blankenship. The previous year's reduction in force was much more severe, after a loss in student population of about 115.

Roane County, in addition to many other counties, suffered a major loss of students this year. With a 100 student decline, about 44 teachers and school employees will be eliminated or transferred there.
