LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Unified School District is getting a temporary reprieve from massive budget cuts, but thousands of teachers and staff members are still facing potential layoffs.

The school board Tuesday delayed a vote on a $6 billion plan that would cut jobs, adult education classes and funding for early education and arts programs.

They are asking LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy to work with teachers unions develop a new proposal that would save the programs.

Educators, teachers and parents have all protested the current plan, which is designed to bridge a $557 million deficit.

A final version of the budget is months away, but Deasy is allowed to begin preparing layoff notices that would be sent by March 8.

    Get it straight. They are not “layoff notices”, they are layoff warnings. They send them out every year and they mean essentially nothing to almost everyone who gets them, they are just warnings that layoffs maybe necessary.

    The problem can be solved by them being paid less for the same work, almost everyone who works there could easily afford it.

      They’re not just warnings. I’ve been teaching for 7 years, and have been getting these notices for the last 3 years. This past summer I had to go on unemployment because my “warning” turned into an actual layoff. There are less and less teachers every year, so it’s getting more serious for us every year they do this. You need to get your facts straight.
