Boston schools chief says job cuts ahead

Interim Superintendent John McDonough, confronting another tough budget year and calls to overhaul the School Department’s central office, told hundreds of school employees Tuesday that their jobs will not be guaranteed beyond June 30.

McDonough, who is still crafting a restructuring plan, said he did not know how many positions could ultimately be eliminated, but said the cuts could be significant. The warning was issued to almost the entire central office staff, including all members of McDonough’s executive team, and did not apply to staffs at individual schools. He said he hoped to have the number finalized in the coming weeks.
