John Moore – Getty Images News

The Lansing school board is moving forward with a plan to layoff up to 95 employees and to privatize busing services. Last night’s vote is part of the district’s effort to reduce an estimated $6 million deficit for the upcoming school year. According to the Lansing State Journal and The Associated Press, layoffs may include up to five administrators, 20 instructional staffers, 45 instructional support workers, and 25 others. The district will contract its busing with Dean Transportation by way of a consortium through Ingham Intermediate School District, saving LSD an estimated $760,000 in annual operational costs. And, it expects to haul in nearly $1.5 million by selling its bus fleet.
