L.A. Unified teachers — but not administrators — will escape budget-related layoffs this year

Mar 10, 2016 by

No teachers in the L.A. Unified School District will get pink slips for cash flow reasons this year.  

That’s thanks in part to a one-time influx of cash from the state and Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed budget that allocates more funding to schools. The last time the district didn’t send teachers these notices was 2013.

Teachers across L.A. Unified have become accustomed to getting pink slips on March 15 — that’s when state law requires districts to notify teachers that they could be laid off. 

Receiving a notice doesn’t mean those teachers are going to be laid off, but the district sends layoff notices while it waits to find out how much money it will receive from the state for the next school year, and how many teachers it can afford to keep.

Not every district employee is safe this year, though.
