Five administrative positions in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District will fall to the budget ax in the next school year as part of a program of cost-cutting to make up a multimillion-dollar shortfall due to losses in the Orange County bond pool. Eliminating the jobs will save the district $395,000, Supt. Mac Bernd said in announcing the cut Thursday. It is unclear whether employees would be dismissed or offered other positions within the district, he added.

The superintendent of the Huntington Beach Union High School District on Tuesday said that two top district officials will be laid off to make $120,000 in management cuts ordered last week by the Board of Trustees.

A feuding, frustrated Los Angeles Board of Education on Thursday ground out a precariously balanced, tentative budget that triggers 269 layoffs and hinges in part on improving student attendance. Most of the layoffs, part of an overall work force reduction that took about 1,000 jobs, are among the lower-paying, so-called "classified" jobs--including clerical and other office workers, custodians, maintenance workers and cafeteria staff.

The Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees, saying that it must make $4.2 million in budget cuts by September, voted this week to send layoff notices to 46 teachers and administrators. Monday's vote does not necessarily mean that the layoffs will occur, but state law requires that teachers and school administrators be notified by March 15 if they are to be laid off for the fall semester, officials said. The board has until May 15 to decide whether to go ahead with the terminations.
