MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Close to 50 people could be losing their jobs in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District.

The district’s proposed budget calls for 47 jobs to be cut, including 27 teachers and 20 administrative and support staff.

To deal with the cuts, schools will switch to a six-period day instead of an eight-period day next fall.

The board’s plan includes the elimination of high school figure skating and a $10 increase in sports and activities fees.

The district is also planning on reducing bus service. Elementary school students who live a mile or closer to school will have to walk or get a ride to and from school.

The school board will vote on the budget plan at the end of the month.
