SUGAR LAND -- Fort Bend Independent School District voted Monday to lay off 52 school employees.

That number is much lower than the 275 originally listed for nonrenewal of contracts.

The new total only includes certified teaching positions and certified non-teaching professional positions.

"Those employees have been placed in positions that have become available due to vacancies, resignations and retirements," FBISD chief communications officer Mary Ann Simpson said.

But it is unclear what will happen to hundreds of other positions the district previously proposed cutting as it faces a $20 million budget deficit...

Watch comment: When will the vendor feeding end that caused this budget crisis?

Did any senior administrators come under the budget ax?
