For the second time in less than a year Charlottesville's Director of School Improvement Dr. Laura Purnell has been informed she might be out of a job.

The city school board asked Acting Superintendent Robert Thompson to recommend cuts within central office.

If approved, Purnell's position will be cut starting next school year, and unlike last time, officials say she is understanding of this decision.
