More than 1300 local teachers got pink slips recently. But now, San Diego's school board is looking for a creative way to save hundreds of jobs.
The plan includes swapping money from the downtown library over to the School District.
School Board President Richard Barrera plans to ask trustees to swap $7.3 million from the library's school project, so the money can be used to save 300 jobs.
If approved, eventually the school district would pay back the money under the Proposition S bond measure.
The School Board will take up the issue on Tuesday.
