SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Public Schools has announced that all teachers notified of lay-offs earlier this year will be recalled.

The recalls are possible because of the finalization of late retirements and leave requests.

"It is certainly unfortunate that the law requires us to make notifications by May 15, in advance of so many budget and staffing items being resolved," Assistant Superintendent Staci Vesneske said in an email to affected teachers. "However, we are very glad that in the end, the recommended budget, along with additional retirements and leaves, created the opportunity for us to bring back everyone by the end of June."

Earlier estimates showed that 85 percent of the 103 teachers notified of lay-offs in May would be recalled.

When the layoffs were initially announced, Vesneske did believe that most of the teachers would be recalled.
