SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Unified School District will need to lay off more employees and require further concessions from those who remain if mid-year budget cuts are required, according to a report from Superintendent Bill Kowba that was placed online Monday.
The report will be delivered to Board of Education trustees at Tuesday's afternoon's meeting.
"All solution options have dire consequences," Kowba said in the report.
Kowba said that along with employee impacts, 10 or more schools might need to be closed and other district-owned property would need to be sold.
The state budget requires a major reduction in kindergarten through 12th-grade education funding if revenues fall below projections, a scenario which appears to be developing, Kowba said.
Any state cutbacks would also affect the projections for the 2012-13 school year, when the district would face a shortfall of $60 million to $118 million, Kowba said.
District officials say they're in their sixth consecutive year of budget cutbacks.
High pressure will bring warmer temperatures and shallower marine layer through Tuesday. Overnight and morning low clouds and fog are possible.
