Facing sharply declining enrollment, Orange County's biggest school district will lay off as many as 100 teachers before the next school year as part of an effort to cut nearly $15 million, district and union officials said Thursday. The nearly 62,000-student Santa Ana Unified School District is facing the same problem decimating district budgets across the state. More than half of school districts statewide have declining enrollment, and fewer students means fewer state dollars.

Enrollment at Orange County's community colleges this spring is expected to remain virtually unchanged from last spring when enrollment dipped to a five-year low, school officials said Tuesday. Officials at the county's four community college districts, which include eight schools, say last spring's enrollment decline numbers, as much as 6% at some colleges, will remain the same. The drop in enrollment coincides with a statewide tuition hike for students who already have a bachelor's degree.
