SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Unified School District Board of Education Tuesday will consider a proposal to increase the number of layoff notices going to classified staff.
Last month, trustees voted to eliminate more than 700 jobs for district staff workers, including more than 130 positions that were vacant.
The latest proposal is to cut an additional 315 positions, including 80 currently vacant.
District officials estimate they can save $8.2 million in salaries and benefits with the added cuts, but the final dollar figure won't be known until the process known as job-bumping - in which workers with more seniority can take a lower-level position - is completed.
The school board also will decide whether to rescind a number of layoff notices for teachers, depending on the result of reports to be delivered by the finance and human resources departments.
