The San Diego Unified Board of Education will vote Tuesday on whether to send some 200 additional pink slips to staff, bringing the total number of potential layoffs next year to about 1,700. The latest proposal would all but decimate the district’s already anemic library system.
It would lay off all library technicians at middle and high schools. They are the only ones currently staffing their libraries. It would also eliminate six out of nine positions in the district’s central clearinghouse for textbooks, computers and other library assets.
