The RCSD School Board will vote this week on a cost-cutting plan that includes laying off those teachers.
On Monday, students and parents will march from the Memorial Art Gallery to the district offices downtown.
“This protest is simply to support our teachers and to show this really does affect students,” Sarah Adams, a student in the district said.
“We’re going to protest this and do something meaningful.”
The Board of Education is set to vote on the proposed cuts on Thursday.
“It was devastating enough to stand out in the cold and protest for them,” RCSD student Madison Smith said.
“I think it took a toll on all of us and that’s why we are here today to show that we actually are being affected.”
