MIDLAND, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School is cutting 43 jobs out of roughly 700 full- and part-time positions as it restructures to deal with declining enrollment and increased competition from school districts offering their own online programs.

The public school is funded by federal and state agencies and revenue from the home school districts of the students who enroll.

Based in Midland, Beaver County, the school has seen its enrollment drop from about 11,500 students to 10,000 in the last two years.

According to a news release issued Tuesday, the school is cutting 21 teaching positions and 22 other staff members.

Michael Conti, the school’s chief executive officer, says, “The quality of PA Cyber’s curriculum and student services will not change” as a result of the cuts.
