Painful Layoffs Coming to San Diego Unified

The San Diego Unified School District is finalizing a round of layoffs as it stares down a $94 million shortfall next year.

A list of the coming cuts is expected to be released at the school board’s next meeting on March 5.

The list will include dozens of administrative positions, mostly in the district’s central office, United Administrators Southern California Executive Director Donis Coronel told ABC 10 News.  

The sunsetting of COVID-19 relief funds has left numerous districts, including SDUSD, with no choice but to downsize. As Cal School News reported Tuesday, the Pasadena Unified School District is cutting 224 positions because of the lapse in those funds.

The SDUSD community is encouraged to weigh in on potential solutions over the coming weeks. The district will hold community listening sessions where residents can give their input.
