OUSD could cut 150 staff positions

UPDATE: The school board tabled the discussion on layoffs Monday night. They take it up Wednesday night, at a 6 p.m. special meeting.

More bad news for Oakland’s public schools and the people who work in them: At least 150 clerks, school security officers, technicians and other support staff could soon lose their jobs.

A resolution detailing the layoff of school support staff was added to the agenda of a 6 p.m. special school board meeting (originally about Race to the Top grant applications for two middle schools: ROOTS and Alliance Academy) tonight at ROOTS International, a middle school on the Havenscourt campus.

You can find the resolution here.

These layoffs, of course, will have all kinds of ripple effects on schools and employees across the district — just like last year.
