NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) – New Haven’s Board of Education voted Monday night to push back a decision that would affect dozens of teaching jobs within its district.

Superintendent Carol Birks wants to reassign the teachers to fill other openings. It’s a move aimed at saving the district millions of dollars.

On Monday night, critics attacked the plan and scored a major victory.

If this plan goes forward, 53 teachers will be impacted.

During the meeting at the Celentano School, it was students who led the charge against the proposal.

“The students and staff of New Haven sticks together, and it shows in numbers,” said Nico Rivera, a New Haven student.
