HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) - DeSoto County school leaders are exploring ways to streamline jobs in the district’s central office as a cost-saving measure.

It’s part of new Superintendent Cory Uselton’s emerging personnel strategy.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1XBrk4c) school board members got a glimpse of it Thursday in a personnel report that called for eliminating two vacated positions, a clerical position in special projects and a bookkeeper in the purchasing department.

Uselton said the decision not to fill the jobs was part of a strategy to save money.

Uselton said there’s no timetable for addressing personnel issues; rather, he said it’s an ongoing task that he plans to review continually.

The DeSoto school district is Mississippi’s largest.
