For the Record

Esther Pereira, former superintendent and principal for Gorman Elementary School District, called to confirm that the March 15 deadline for giving teachers pink slips so they have advance warning of possible layoffs is part of state Education Code 44955.

The deadline is out of sync with districts’ receipt of information about budget facts.

In “ETUSD Stages Replay Of Illegal Meeting” in The Mountain Enterprise February 17, it was mistakenly stated that this is a union contract requirement.

This is part of the February 24, 2012 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
