to co-workers who have been RIFed? We found out yesterday that three staff members have not been re-hired for next year and their positions either completely eliminated or cut to half-time. In a way, it wasn't surprising that positions have been cut or reduced because our state is in a huge deficit (which I am sure many states are also) but on the other hand, it was surprising because our building is already down three teachers already.
I've never been in this sort of position before, and I know that our teacher association is giving them support but I can't say that I know exactly what to do for them or quite what to say.
