Paso Robles Joint Union High School District officials have made some tough choices to deal with the district's projected $7.4 million dollar budget shortfall for the next school year. The district has announced plans to layoff 52 teachers and two administrators as a way to save some necessary cash.
Officials have decided 24.5 elementary school teachers, 20.55 secondary school teachers, seven special program teachers and two administrators will lose their jobs this year. The district must notify those teachers that they'll be laid-off by March 15th.
According to a press release from the district, officials say there are more cost-cutting measures on the way. They say future decisions could include staff layoffs or program cuts. Just last week, the district also approved a district-wide spending freeze for the rest of this current school year. That means no unapproved overtime costs or unnecessary spending on school supplies.
The district board says a drastic cut in state funding is to blame for the major budget problems.
