More than a dozen Dixon Unified teachers could soon get layoff notices, although they might still have jobs next school year.
The Dixon Unified School District Governing Board will discuss possible layoff notices Thursday night, and could take the first steps toward cutting the equivalent of about 14 full-time jobs.
"Uncertainty over the funding formula that will drive the revenue the district will receive in 2013-14, as well as an anticipated decline in enrollment of students necessitates the reduction of certificated staff," a staff report states.
Proposed cuts before the school board include three grade-school teachers, the equivalent of about five intervention teachers, one special education resource specialist, a community day school teacher and two district-wide teachers on special assignment. Other teachers could have their hours cut.
The district is required to notify employees facing possible layoffs by March 15 and send final layoff notices by May 15; the notices could be rescinded before then.
Meanwhile, the district and Dixon Teachers Association may reopen negotiations over class sizes, salaries, hours and more. The school board will vote Thursday on an initial proposal to open those talks.
