School board considers layoff notices

By
February 15, 2011 |

Preliminary layoff notices — scores of them — are on the agenda for
Thursday night’s meeting of the Davis school board.
Faced with considerable uncertainty regarding the state budget, as
well as the yet-to-be-determined fate of the Davis school district’s
local emergency parcel tax — which goes before voters in May — the board is being asked to prepare for a “worst case” financial
scenario. That scenario includes notifying teachers and certain other
employees by the state-mandated March 15 deadline that they might not
have a job in the fall.
At its Feb. 3 meeting, the school board contemplated a draft
resolution calling for layoffs covering 60.7 full-time-equivalent
certificated positions (teachers, counselors, etc.) In all likelihood
the school district actually would send layoff notices to 70 or more
certificated employees, since the number noticed is
typically larger than the actual number of layoffs contemplated.

That preparation protects the school district if an administrative law judge who reviews the layoff list determines that some of the employees
who receive notices are not eligible for layoffs.
District staff members were still working on the resolution for certificated
layoffs on Tuesday morning, so it was not immediately clear whether
the resolution will still cover 60.7 positions.
District staff members also were working on a companion resolution covering
layoffs for classified positions, including custodians and maintenance
workers, secretaries and food and nutrition staffers. No version of
that resolution has been posted publicly thus far.

However, in February
2010, when the school district faced a similar financial crisis, the board approved a resolution calling for layoff notices to be
sent to 22.75 classified employees — which may provide some indication
of what this year’s resolution could entail.
Elsewhere on the agenda, the school board will:
— Hear an update on the planned June graduation ceremony at Davis
High School. In recent years, the DHS ceremony has
been held at Aggie Stadium on the UC Davis campus. This year, the
ceremony is scheduled to take place at the new Ron & Mary Brown
Stadium on the Davis High campus. A planning committee will share
details with the school board.
— Hear a presentation by the school district’s technology and
information services department.
— Consider a proposed new school board policy regarding suicide prevention.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Community Chambers at Davis
City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. It will be carried live on Davis
cable Channel 17, and as streaming video on the school
district’s website www.djusd.tv
