Laid off teachers being recalled to Valley Catholic schools

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Teachers laid off from the Lumen Christi schools should be receiving recall notices later this month.  School President Lois Cavucci has circulated an email saying that teachers have reached an agreement on a union contract. 

Layoff notices were issued to teachers on April 14 after what Cavucci said were issues related to a balanced budget for coming year.

Cavucci says the call back letters will be sent out by the first of next week. She won't have a figure on the final number of teachers being recalled until final enrollment numbers are known, but Cavucci says she expects that ninety percent of the teachers will be back in the classrooms this fall.

This is the first year six valley schools are united under the Lumen Christi Catholic School System, which began as a plan to streamline resources and increase the schools in size.

Lumen Christi consists of St. Patrick, St. Nicholas, St. Joseph and Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Christine, St. Charles and St. Luke. Both Holy Family and St. Christine also offer early childhood programs through the system.
