Other Cuts

In addition to the school closures approved Thursday night, the SCUSD Board cut $4 million by increasing class sizes for kindergarten to third grade from 20 to 24 students per teacher. This action eliminates 137 teaching positions.

Also increasing are ninth-grade classes from 20 to 25 students per teacher, resulting in the loss of 7 teaching positions, saving the district $480,000.

The board also voted to eliminate 13 management and 16 classified positions in administration and central services, saving the district another $1.9 million.
