Last Friday the Eastern Sierra Unified School District spread the news to 21 classified employees that their job positions were in jeopardy due to the huge budget cutbacks the District is having to make. The ESUSD Board will choose whether or not to approve the list of positions at their regularly scheduled meeting tomorrow night, April 21, at 6 p.m. at Coleville High School.
According to ESUSD Human Resources Administrator Mollie Nugent, if the list is approved those on it will be given a 45 day layoff notice. Last Thursday and Friday Nugent went around forewarning people that their positions were on the list, and that, if the list is approved, she would be coming back at the end of this week to give them their notices.
“You may recall that, for Certificated positions we have the March 15 deadline for noticing,” Nugent said in an e-mail to The Sheet. ” For Classified people, the requirement is different. Classified may be noticed at any time, but they must be provided notices a minimum of 45 calendar days before layoffs take effect.”

As of April 14 numbers showed that expenditures need to be reduced by just under $2.6 million in order for ESUSD to balance its budget next year.
