A new statewide survey found that at least 2,800 public school jobs have been lost to budget cuts this year.
The survey, conducted by The Oklahoma State School Board Association, showed that 1,500 of those jobs lost were teaching positions and 1,300 were support staff.
The OSSBA conducted the survey during the first two weeks of August. Districts representing about 83 percent of the state’s public school enrollment participated.
