Another 30 teaching positions safe after School District vote

TAHOE CITY ” The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to rescind about 30 more teacher layoff notices.

The notices, extended earlier this year when the district learned it would be facing approximately a $4 million shortfall, have been reduced twice now.

Originally about 95 full-time equivalent positions were set to be laid off, meaning about 140 people received notices. That number reduced to 73 recently and now stands at 42.47.

David Inns, assistant superintendent of Human Resources for the district, said the resolution comes as a result of the district over-noticing employees to satisfy the budget in March before changes were made in out-of-classroom expenses which diminished the need for teacher layoffs.

He said he doesn’t anticipate any further reductions to the number of teachers who are to be laid off.

“We’ve found about all the money we could,” Inns said.
