BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — In the face of declining enrollment and an $18 million budget deficit the Superintendent of Brockton Public Schools has announced significant job cuts throughout the public school system.  

Superintendent Michael Thomas issued a statement that he was "greatly disappointed" to announce the elimination of 130 certified staff positions.

The statement also said additional notifications will be made in the coming days to non-certified staff members.

According to school officials, since the pandemic began, the school district’s enrollment has dropped by almost 1,350 students.

While the superintendent said he’s confident the school district’s five-year improvement process “will encourage new families to move to Brockton,” the “current enrollment does not support existing staffing levels.”
