New Haven Superintendent Dr. Carol Birks sent out a letter to part-time employees to rescind layoff notices.

Last month, 1,100 layoff notices were sent out to part-time employees of the school district.

The layoffs caused parents and staff to be very upset with the district.

In the letter, Birks said, “It was never my intention to create any confusion or frustration in regards to your part-time employment status with New Haven Public Schools. Therefore, I would like to rescind the letter that you received dated June 22, 2018.”

The employees who received the notices included tutors, lunch aides, bus monitors and part-time teachers.

Birks also said administrator and the Human Resources Department are identifying essential part-time positions that align with federal, national, and state accountability indicators.
