Layoffs, job eliminations show up in Pasco school district's bottom line

October

What a difference a fiscal year makes.

At the end of the 2010-11 school year, the Pasco County school district's final full biweekly payroll included 10,616 employees with a total payout of $13,828,891.01.

Over the summer, the School Board cut hundreds of positions as part of its $54 million reduction in spending. 

As a result, the first full biweekly payroll for 2011-12 included 9,783 employees with a total payout of $12,928,546.25. 

For those keeping score, that's 833 fewer workers, earning $900,344.76 less per pay period. The savings are close to on target with district budget plans, provided that lawmakers don't cut any more funding midyear, as some are now expecting.

Question: Do you feel it in the schools?
