HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - The Hattiesburg Public School District interim superintendent has informed district employees of more pending salary and job cuts.

The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/20ZOmr0 ) reports Superintendent Greg Ladner announced the cuts during an informational meeting Tuesday evening.

Ladner says principals will face a 5 percent salary cut beginning with the 2016-17 fiscal year on July 1. He also says teaches would see a reduction of about $19 a month in they paychecks.

Ladner says the principals’ cuts would save the district about $50,000 annually and the teachers’ cuts would save about $110,000.

He also added that there will be staff reductions among contract employees including teachers. He says teachers’ jobs will be cut because there are now fewer students.
