Two weeks ago, an item that could have been a prelude to increasing class sizes — in some cases dramatically — was pulled from the agenda. Now, the district wants to beat the March 15 state deadline and send layoff notices affecting 95.2 assistant principal, teaching and counseling positions.
Hardest hit would be elementary school teachers (27), high school English teachers (seven), high school P.E. teachers (four), social science teachers (four), high school English instructional coaches (four) and high school math coaches (four). Not to mention 17.20 counseling positions.
No one actually loses their job if noticed by March 15. But by sending out the notices, SUSD would preserve the right to lay off these employees by the state’s May 15 deadline.
