It was a difficult day for Benton Harbor High School teachers on Friday as everything single one of them received a letter informing them of whether or not they had been fired.

NewsCenter16 has confirmed that the letters were prepared by 9 am on Friday and were handed out by 10 am later that day.

As we told you earlier, 50 percent of the teachers and administrators are being let go.

The principal told us that it is all part of a turnaround plan that aims at improving student achievement.

The superintendent’s office says that administrators will have to wait to find out if they have been let go until after interviews are conducted next week.
