Grand Blanc Schools Recall 26 Laid Off Teachers 8-02-2010

The Grand Blanc School District may not have fared too well on its report card with parents last year when it laid off two dozen teachers.
But now that the teachers have been called back, parents like Erin Lavere are giving them good marks. “I’m happy about that,” said Lavere.
In fact, Lavere would probably hand out an A+ for bringing back her daughter's Spanish teacher at Cook Elementary. “She really enjoys it,” said Lavere about the class.
The district laid off 26 teachers in an effort to fight budget problems.
Even though it called back all 26, only 17 are returning. The rest opted for the retirement package offered earlier this year by the state.
Two new teachers have already been hired to fill the void, but another seven new teachers could be on the way as the year progresses.
The district said six of the seven new teachers will be hired to work at the high school.
The district indicated it want to wait until the beginning of the school year, when it has a student count, to fill the other teaching spots to make sure there's need.
