WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — The fate of dozens of teachers facing layoffs in Warwick was determined in a meeting Wednesday night.
The Warwick School Committee took more action in their efforts to consolidate the district.
The committee voted to layoff a total of 65 teachers at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.
In a statement, Superintendent Philip Thornton said,
“[The layoffs] are not a reflection of the quality of Warwick teachers or the contributions they have made throughout their employment. This is an unfortunate part of school consolidation.”
