Region 9 Slashes Dozens Of Jobs

The Region 9 Education Service Center is having to make up for a big budget loss by losing dozens of jobs.

Officials said Region 9 will be working with about $1.7 million less this year than the previous year. Region 9 has been under a hiring freeze since January. Officials said 24 positions have been eliminated through attrition and 8 dismissals. That has brought the work force down from 82 positions to 58.

The Region 9 Education Service Center provides services to nearly 40 school districts across Texoma.
