A morose Vallejo school board unanimously approved devastating budget cuts Tuesday night as 50 district positions were eliminated.
The move will save the Vallejo City Unified School District about $4.3 million for its upcoming 2018-19 fiscal year budget.
A sizable audience was on hand to learn about the cuts during the special board meeting held at Steffan Manor Elementary School.
“Every position in the district is directed toward supporting the classroom, so none of these reductions, that we are recommending, are easy to make,” VCUSD Superintendent Adam Clark said to the board and those in attendance. “They all are useful, they all are needed within our district to support our students. Every last one of them.”
