Navajo school to cut one-third of staff to avoid closure

 


FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Dozens of people gathered in a small Navajo Nation community Tuesday to encourage the tribe's education department to take over a school in financial ruin.

Nearly one-third of the employees at Leupp Schools Inc. will lose their jobs Friday as part of a reorganization plan.

Tribal officials say the school system has been financially unstable for years, paying out too much in salaries while enrollment declines, posting a deficit of almost $2 million last year, and garnering the attention of the Internal Revenue Service by failing to pay more than $100,000 in employee taxes.
