The positions of several teacher aides who were let go earlier this year from the Auburn Enlarged City School District have been restored.
Eight aide spots that were cut back in June were recalled at a district board of education meeting Tuesday night. Fifteen teacher aides were originally part of 28 positions that had been set to be cut in light of a $3.8 million budget deficit the district faced in May.
District Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo said after the meeting that all 15 of those aides had been contacted about coming back and 13 plan to return to the district. Pirozzolo said the aides were needed again due to a combination of other aides either retiring or resigning or new registrations for children requiring special education programs.
“We’re happy that we’ve recalling anybody that we lay off,” Pirozzolo said.
