CONWAY - As school districts across South Carolina grapple with finding ways to deal with massive budget shortfalls, Horry County School Superintendent Dr. Cindy Elsberry tells News 13 the district is closing in on a plan that could include layoffs.

Elsberry says if there are any cuts or layoffs, they would take effect in August, at the start of the new school year.

However, because the county anticipates more students next year, it will likely have to hire more teachers.

Elsberry says she anticipates class sizes will stay at about where they are now.

As far as job cuts, she says principals will decide which positions are less needed, and the board will then discuss.

Elsberry anticipates more cuts at the district level than among teachers.

Dr. Elsberry stressed to us that the district works on an April 15th deadline and, at this time, no specific decisions on reductions have been made, and that all the talk about reductions are, at this point, only anticipated and not confirmed.
