MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) - The Midland Public Schools district is bracing for cuts, including some teacher jobs.

WEYI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1mLkrcc ) the district is eliminating 12 teaching positions through attrition and retirement.

Associate superintendent Linda Cline says that funding isn’t there anymore because of declining enrollment. She says the plans reflect a trend in the district, with fewer teachers, administrators and overall staff members in the school district each year.

The station says teachers also are grappling with a possible 2 percent pay cut. A decision on the school budget is expected soon.
