State Cuts Likely To Bring Layoffs, Furloughs To California District

The Ventura County (CA) Star (3/15) reports that California's Ventura Unified School District could see up to $8 million in state funding cuts, "on top of about $20 million in cuts in the past three years," noting that in order to offset these cuts, "six more children would have to be added to kindergarten through third-grade classrooms. ... Also, district officials this week would give layoff notices to 75 teachers and counselors, some of whom have worked in the district for more than eight years."
