Teachers given a pink slip earlier this year will get their jobs back after a vote by the Oceanside Unified school board Tuesday, according to a published report.
At least 37 of the 73 teachers who got layoff notices will keep their jobs. For some, it will be only temporarily.
The district plans to use $2.2 million in federal stimulus money to pay for salaries and benefits for the 28 teachers to be brought back on one-year contracts, the North County Times reported. Because the stimulus money is a one-time fix, the jobs aren’t permanent.
In addition to those 28, nine were rehired into permanent positions to replace teachers who have retired or resigned, the paper reported.
