EL PASO - Tonight's a tough one for El Paso Independent School District. Some employees are in danger of losing their jobs and it's only the beginning.
The decision just came down to cut $5.6 million out the EPISD's budget, eliminating 116 positions. Those positions include at-risk coordinators and office positions. The district says those people won't be handed pink slips, though, because they will try and find other spots for them within the district.
The district still has to cut about $17 million.
