After the major economic downturn in 2008, local school district’s were forced to make critical cut in services for many school years.
Now, with an improved economic forecast, the Fairfield-Suisun, Vacaville and Travis school districts have all regained much of what was lost in those years and are looking forward to years of coming growth.
Fairfield-Suisun School District was able to replace some services that were cut under budget shortfalls, including middle school sports programs. Serving more than 21,000 students, the district felt the pinch from forced teacher layoffs as much as any district in the area during those tight budget times. However, through a series of job fairs and other employment events, the district was able to hire several teachers and add needed support staff.
