A total of 678 new jobs will be created for teachers in Broward the next school year, officials said.
Many of the jobs will be specialized classes, which had been cut in the past, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.
Last year the district cut 1,500 teachers. This year there will be 395 layoffs, of them, 380 will not be teachers, but positions that do not instruct.
And in large part, the new positions will be filled by teachers who had been previously laid off.
The Broward Teachers Union didn't comment to the newspaper on the plan for next year.
The newspaper reported that the district will not renew 197 contract teachers or teachers who haven't gotten a measure of tenure after four years teaching. For those not teaching, a total of 68 contracts will not be renewed.
"The district was able to redirect resources to the classrooms to focus on meeting class-size mandates and restoring specialties like art, music and PE at the elementary school level," the newspaper quoted Tracy Clark, the district's spokeswoman, as saying.
