Less Funding May Lead to Teacher Layoffs

March 01, 1990

Faced with a potential $1.8-million budget shortfall, Ventura Unified School District administrators have announced that administrators, teachers and programs in the 25-school district could face cutbacks, including layoffs and elimination of special programs.

The announcement at Tuesday evening's school board meeting followed Gov. George Deukmejian's proposal to trim the cost-of-living increase for California's elementary and secondary schools to 3%, instead of the 4.95% called for by law. A 3% cost-of-living increase will reduce district revenues by $1.8 million.

District officials have notified principals of potential reassignments for the 1990-91 school year, a proposal that could put some administrators back in the classroom. The school board will decide whether to notify teachers of potential layoffs at the next board meeting, March 13.
