Dayton Board of Education votes to reduce administrative positions

Dayton schools need change or risk state takeover

DAYTON — In a statement, Dayton Public Schools says it will vote next month to reduce administrative positions.

According to the release, Superintendent Rhonda Corr made the recommendation at the Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 26, citing a 10-year trend of decreased student enrollment.

The decline in enrollment has resulted in a district that is “overstaffed with central office administrative and school-based staff,” the release said.

“We are considering all practical options to right-size our central office before looking at our classrooms. As we work toward greater operational efficiency, we must not lose our focus on staying the course to achieve higher student outcomes,” Dayton Board of  Education President Adil Baguirov said.

The vote will take place at the board’s business meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17.
