SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego school trustee wants to slash employee pay under a plan to save the district from insolvency.
A local news source says the plan detailed Monday by Scott Barnett calls for across-the-board pay cuts on a sliding scale. The cuts would include 5.75 percent for most teachers and 12.75 percent for top administrators. Full-time employees from clerks to custodians also would be affected.
The plan also halts raises, raises certain employee health costs and imposes a new property tax - although that would require a public vote.
Barnett says the plan will save the district would save $70 million a year for three years while avoiding layoffs or class size increases.
He'll present it to the school board on Nov. 29.
