Program and Staff Reductions

Program and staff reductions may be required as a direct result of enrollment decline, failure of a special levy election or other events resulting in a significant reduction in revenue; or termination or reduction of funding of categorically-funded projects. The board as part of the budget development process shall review those educational programs and services which may be reduced, modified or eliminated. 

When the reduction, modification or elimination of programs and/or services necessitates a reduction in staff, the district, in compliance with law, will retain staff members based upon the prioritized needs of the district.
