Birmingham BOE unsure over further job cuts

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Birmingham School Board is holding off on talks that could lead to more job cuts.

During Tuesday's board meeting, Superintendent Craig Witherspoon asked members to give him the "go ahead" to start looking at positions that could be eliminated.

Some board members questioned why the cuts were necessary, considering the system eliminated more than 200 positions just two-weeks ago.

Witherspoon says he may submit his proposal with more details at a future meeting.
