CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Thirteen Cody School District teachers have chosen to take early retirement packages as the district struggles with budget issues.

The Cody Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/2nO7VBF ) that in addition to the 13 retirements, a few other staff members resigned, leading to 15-plus open positions. Superintendent Ray Schulte says 12 certified positions will be eliminated.

Schulte says the district is making cuts in order to bring expenses in line with declining state revenue.

The district’s shortfall comes from legislative cuts and continued declines in enrollment.
