GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- The Grand Rapid Public School District is sending layoff notices to 90 staff members this week.

The notices come as the district is projecting another year of declining enrollment. This year, the district predicts 400 fewer students will return in the fall. Still, the layoffs and projected decline in population is not as drastic as in years past.

A GRPS spokesperson says the layoffs are the smallest they've had in years and the administration is confident many of the positions will be called back.
