At least 38 positions are being considered for possible elimination as the Vallejo City Unified School District faces an anticipated $8 million shortfall for the upcoming 2018-19 fiscal year.
VCUSD’s new Chief Business Officer Hitesh Haria presented the news to the Vallejo school board during its meeting Wednesday night.
Twenty-seven of the positions would come from various school sites, with the balance from the district’s central office, Haria added.
A full list of which positions the district is recommending to be cut will come before the school board Jan. 24. The week after that, the board is expected to make official positions cuts, Haria said.
In addition, preliminary cuts are being eyed for student nutrition services, child development and special education, he informed the board.
