Hempstead SD to eliminate over a dozen staffers

The Hempstead School District has announced that it will eliminate over a dozen staffers. 



The school board met Tuesday to talk about cutting staffers to balance the budget. 



According to Newsday, the district will slash 18 positions including English as a second language, music, teachers and special education teachers. 



Hempstead decided to reduce spending even though a flood of child immigrants has enrolled.
