The layoffs are expected to save $2 million in salaries. Another 15 unfilled, frozen positions were removed from the department's employee base as well. Those jobs carried another $1.6 million in salaries. The biggest hit comes in the technology division, which lost 28 positions, 14 of them filled. Next was the finance division, which lost 10 positions and 21 people. Other areas losing employees include graphics, printing and financial aid. "These reductions were made with the sole focus of preserving the core services we provide to students, parents, teachers and other Department customers and should in no way be a reflection of the professionalism and quality work of the employees impacted by this decision," DOE spokeswoman Kelsey Lehtomaa said. "The Department is offering job placement assistance and able to provide recommendation letters to these individuals in an effort to help them quickly locate new employment opportunities."
