Carlsbad Teachers Avoid Over 70 Layoffs

As the city of San Diego’s teachers struggle to negotiate staff layoffs, the Carlsbad Unified School District is dealing with its own financial challenges.

Most of the teachers who received layoff notices last month will be brought back as part of a contract deal between the Carlsbad Unified School District and the district’s teachers union.

The Carlsbad Unified School District faces a projected $2,207,797 million deficit. It expects to reduce the total union member compensation by $1,526,333 effective July 1.

The contract also includes three fewer class days for students and teachers, plus two fewer training days for teachers. Union members will meet Wednesday night to discuss the contract agreement.

Union members are currently voting on the tentative agreement, and district trustees will vote on it later this month.
