LA schools rescind 522 teacher pink slips, dropping number of expected layoffs to 1,000
LOS ANGELES – LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles school board has rescinded 522 layoffs of elementary school teachers, dropping the number of expected layoffs to about 1,000 for the next school year.
The school board approved the move Tuesday after the teachers union agreed to 12 furlough days over the next two years to save jobs.
The district sent out 3,100 pink slips in March to elementary teachers, counselors, nurses and librarians for the next school year but so far has rescinded about 2,000 of the notices due to savings and additional sources of funding.
The layoffs are set to go into effect July 1.
