Laramie County School District#1 says 91 one-year teaching positions will go away at the end of this school year because the federal emergency funds used to pay for the positions will no longer be available.

That's according to a news release from the district.

The release says the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (I and II) money was used, in part, to pay for the 91 positions. That money will no longer be available, so the affected teachers have been notified that those jobs will not continue.

District Says Employees Knew The Jobs Were Temporary

The release said the employees knew the jobs were temporary when they took them.

According to the release, ''In accordance with Wyoming Statute, LCSD1 is required to notify staff who are not going to be renewed by April 15. So that they have more time to apply for different positions both within and outside of the district, building administrators hand-delivered letters to the 91 individuals who are affected."
