BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Pink slips are going out to staff at some Baltimore City schools today.

According to WJZ media partner The Baltimore Sun, four different notices were sent out to employees letting them know whether their jobs were changed or their positions eliminated.

The layoffs are part of a cost-cutting measure in CEO Gregory Thornton’s first budget.

He says the layoffs will mainly be in the central office, but educators and staff who don’t have permanent placements could also be cut.
