Durham School Services announces layoffs

Durham School Services, a full service student transportation provider, reported to the Texas Workforce Commission that 67 positions in Little Elm will be cut beginning July 31.

The company provided its layoff notice to the commission on April 23 as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) which protects workers, their families and communities by requiring employers to provide notification of pending job cuts.

Earlier this month, the Little Elm School Board of Trustees approved GoldStar Transit as the carrier for its student transportation for the 2013-2014 school year. Durham School Services also presented a proposal but was not selected, according to a news release.

In addition to the layoffs in Denton County, the company also will cut an additional 218 positions in Johnson, Parker and Uvalde counties starting June 2013.
