Final Layoff Notices OK'd for 245 More

The Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education has approved final layoff notices for 245 more certificated employees, mostly teachers.

After cutting more than 1,000 positions and $330 million since 2008, LBUSD faces further funding losses due to the state’s ongoing budget crisis.

The certificated job cuts include 190 special (or temporary) contract teachers, as well as teaching staff at the school district’s Child Development Centers and Head Start programs that provide pre-K and other services.  The remainder of the personnel also were teachers, with the exception of nine counselors.

The full text of the school board’s layoff resolution, including a listing of the laid off personnel, is available here (see the May 17 heading).
