Data App: Visual Breakdown Of AISD's Proposed 1,012 Job Cuts
Austin school district employees who may lose their jobs next school year will be notified by the end of today. A proposal by Superintendent Meria Carstarphen would eliminate 1,012 positions for an annual savings of $53.6 million.
The list of job cuts released by the district is difficult to read, so we have attempted to clarify what Carstarphen is proposing with this data app. Click on "High School", "Middle School", "Elementary School", etc to see a breakdown by campus or department in the second box. This is an early attempt of ours to develop a data app, so please offer us your feedback in the comments.
