Teacher’s assistants in the Guilford County Schools system will lose seven paid work days as part of a cost-cutting measure.

The district says the plan will help save more than 1,200 jobs and free up about $1 million to be used elsewhere.

Back in May, more than 1,200 teacher’s assistants were told their jobs were on the line and that their schedules could be changed.

School officials say the assistants play a critical role in educating students. They say cuts of any kind are tough, but the measure is necessary.
