Tucson Unified School District OKs job cuts

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Tucson Unified School District plans to lay off 187 teachers and other certified workers at the end of the school year to help close a $17 million budget deficit.

However, some of the employees will be able to shift to vacant jobs.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the district board voted 3-2 Tuesday night to approve the layoffs, a response to declining enrollment and state funding cuts.

Teachers account for most of the workers who would lose their jobs but others include librarians, counselors and literacy and math specialists.
