11 Teacher Positions May Be Cut at ETUSD

FRAZIER PARK and LEBEC, CA (Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012 at 5 p.m.)—In the continuing struggle to run the school district without knowing what the state budget allocations will be for the coming year, El Tejon Unified School District Superintendent Katie Kleier confirmed this evening that 11 teaching positions have been authorized by the board of trustees to be cut from ETUSD’s budget for the 2012-2013 school year. 

In a question sent to the ETUSD superintendent, The Mountain Enterprise said: "People are doing the math and asking how it would be possible to educate if…. more teaching positions are gone."

Kleier replied: "As in previous years, we must plan for the worst and hope for the best. We are hopeful the May revise of the [California] State budget will better define what the actual cuts will be."
