GUHSD ANNOUNCES NO TEACHER LAYOFFS FOR 2013-14 SCHOOL YEAR

 

March 8, 2013 (La Mesa)--The Grossmont Union High School District has announced that it will not bring any certificated teacher layoff notices to the Governing Board at this time. By law, school districts are required to send preliminary notices to certificated staff (teachers) by March 15 if they won’t be offered a contract for the next school year.

The decision was based upon data released by the California Department of Finance last week, where it appears that a version of the Governor’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) will result in funding that is adequate to mitigate the effect of the District’s projected enrollment decline of 879 students next year. Other budget solutions, including the commitment of $7.1 million in district reserves, will be used to cover shortfalls that might exist due to structural deficits that persist.

READER'S EDITORIAL: GUHSD BOUNDARY CHANGES ARE EQUITABLE AND PROCESS WAS FAIR

 
By Doug Deane, Chair, 2011 GUHSD Boundary Committee

 
January 16, 2012 (San Diego East County) -- I’m writing this in response to residents of the GUHSD who believe that they were not given adequate notification of changes recommended by the 2011 Boundary Committee.  I was Chair of that committee.  I’d like to make it clear that I speak only for myself.  The opinions stated below are mine only, and are not necessarily the opinion of the GUHSD, its Trustees or its administrative staff.
