L.A. Unified to send layoff notices to hundreds of teachers
Hundreds of teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District will receive layoff notices this month under a budget plan approved Tuesday by the Board of Education.
The vote does not necessarily mean that the teachers will lose their jobs, but it allows L.A. Unified the option of releasing the instructors if needed. Instructors and other employees with teaching credentials have to be notified by law of a possible layoff by March 15.
