LBUSD Considers Up to $155M in Cuts

At a special meeting last night to discuss the budget crisis, the Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education began considering up to $155 million in potential cuts to be made over the next two years.  

The proposed cuts would affect a wide array of programs, resulting in larger class sizes, selected school closures, and hundreds of layoffs of teachers, central office staff, school administrators, teachers, librarians, nurses, psychologists, counselors and others. Instructional programs, school safety, sports, music, transportation and other services would be affected, in some cases significantly.

The school district already has cut $170 million in the past three years.
