The issuing by the Sacramento City Unified School District of potential layoff notices to dozens of veteran teachers because they haven't earned a special credential to teach English-language learners has some crying foul. Teachers and their union representatives said the school board made an arbitrary decision to change the deadline for earning the credential, placing teachers with decades of experience in danger of losing their jobs.

As workers saluted themselves across California on Monday at traditional Labor Day gatherings or headed out to barbecues and the beach, teachers in three school districts made preparations for possible strikes. The atmosphere was not relaxed in Sacramento and San Jose, where three school districts faced potential teachers strikes as school was set to open. A walkout in the Sacramento City Unified School District and the neighboring San Juan Unified School District would affect 94,000 children.

If educators are looking to evaluate California's impending school reforms, they need only visit the state capital. There, Sacramento's own campuses have already established the types of bold changes that lawmakers have recently mandated for the state's 8,000 schools. Sacramento ranks its campuses by test scores, holds schools accountable for academic progress and requires regimented phonics programs in its elementary and middle schools.

About 2,500 teachers, counselors and nurses on Tuesday rejected the Sacramento City Unified School District's offer and went on strike on the first day of classes after negotiations that stretched into the early morning. In the nearby San Juan School District, however, teachers earlier agreed to postpone their threatened strike while they seek the help of a mediator in their talks. And in San Jose, a tentative contract settlement was announced shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday.

As it faces a possible $27-million budget shortfall, the Sacramento City Unified School District may eliminate or combine some of its elementary schools as one of many cost-cutting measures under consideration. Declining enrollment in elementary schools -- and indications that that trend will continue -- led to the school closure study, district officials said. The study has not been completed or presented to the school board for a vote.

Teachers of the Sacramento City Unified School District, seventh largest in California, went on strike today after the collapse of contract talks. Administrators said that the district's 75 schools were open and that most students were attending school, although some classrooms had no teachers. About 400 substitutes from a pool of 700 were believed to be working along with a few hundred teachers who did not honor picket lines.
