(CARSONVILLE-PORT SANILAC) -- The Carsonville-Port Sanilac School board approved the layoffs of four district teachers during their regular meeting last week. Elementary teacher Michelle Barnett with 5-years of service, Elementary/Junior High teacher Nicole Korpuski, also with 5-years, Albert Lowry, Alternative Education teacher with 6-years with the district, and Elementary teacher Corey Tanton, 4-years of service will be let go at the end of the school year with deep regret. The board also approved reducing teachers Carolyn Christner and Febe Garcia to part-time status. The district says the layoffs and cutbacks were necessary after reviewing projected revenues and expenditures for the 2013-14 school year, program enrollments, and curricular needs. The board Thursday also accepted the retirement of High School Cook Beverly Herrington, who worked 20-years for CPS, and the resignations of Speech Therapist Debbie Kaluck and High School Food Service Aide Lorena Henderson. Two employees took the voluntary severance plan offered by the district. Elementary teacher Brenda Cutler and High School teacher Brenda Nichol had a combined 54-years of service at CPS Schools. In other business, board members approved the creation of one K-12 Administrative position as recommended by Superintendent Harold Titus. Jennifer Richmond was appointed to the K-12 principal position. Contract negotiations are underway. High School Principal Scott Bular will be returning to the classroom this fall.
