Our reporter on the street received a hot tip in regards to some layoffs within the Leyden School District 212. Although he tried to arrange a one-on-one interview with School District President Greg Ignoffo, schedules conflicted. A letter with questions was sent and returned by email with answers from Superintendent Dr. Nick Polyak. Hereare the questions and answers.

Hi Mr. Baldassano,
Greg Ignoffo asked that we get back to you on the questions you had asked earlier this month. See below:

2) What jobs were eliminated?

3) Were these union or non-union positions?

4) What necessitated this decision to lay off employees?

Thanks and have a great day!
Nick
