Brandywine recalls some
teachers, paraprofessionals

Brandywine School District has recalled 10 of the 23 teachers and 14 of the 44 paraprofessional staff members who were laid off at the end of the past academic year, superintendent Mark Holodick told Delaforum. It was not clear to what, if any, extent the number recalled reflects the district's anticipation of receiving financial aid from recently enacted federal legislation intended to save teachers' and other selected government employees' jobs. Holodick said Brandywine believes that "we will benefit" from the new law. However, he added, "To this point I have not heard anything from [the state Department of Education]. Thus, I do not know specifically how much money [the district] would receive or how exactly it could be used."
