SUSD tied for seventh-most teacher layoff notices in California

The California Teachers Association sent out a release this afternoon stating that in the aftermath of Prop. 30, about 3,000 pink slips were sent to teachers by the March 15 deadline this year — 17,000 fewer than at this time a year ago.

Stockton Unified, according to the CTA, tied for seventh in the state this year by sending out 95 layoff notices. Mount Diablo Unified in Concord also sent out 95 pink slips. The Los Angeles County Office of Education sent out a California-high 213 notices. Last year, L.A. Unified and San Diego Unified combined to send out 11,000 notices; this year, they sent none.

It should be noted CTA’s information is based on reports from only 135 of the state’s 1,000-plus school districts. Also, those who received the March 15 notices will not be officially laid off unless they receive final pink slips by May 15.

With enrollment of 38,252, SUSD was the 19th-largest school district in the state in 2010-11, according to the California Department of Education.
