The Pasadena Unified School District Board approved layoff notices for 78 full-time employees and two-part time employees at a Tuesday meeting.
As , the notices do not definitively mean that the teachers will actually be laid off, but rather are a means of meeting state requirements to notify any teacher who may possibly be out of a job in September.
In the past two years, PUSD has cut 20 teaching jobs despite issuing more than 200 layoff notices.
At a Tuesday special meeting, the board discussed the district's current financial situation--according to a press release from the district, next year's budget deficits could be anywhere from $7.2 million to $17 million.
The final decisions on teacher layoffs must be made by May 15, according to the release.
