Bedford Schools to lay off more than a dozen employees

Bedford School officials have finalized plans to lay off more than a dozen workers before the start of the next school year.

On Thursday night, the Board of Education approved the decision to hand out pink slips to around 15 employees.

The final number will depend on those retiring, resigning and if any are called back, as they have been in years past.

The layoffs are due, in part, to budget issues and a reduction in the number of students enrolling.
