Turlock School Teachers and Administrators Getting Pink Slips

96 full-time Turlock school teachers and 32 certified administrators will be getting pink slips following the Turlock Unified School District (TUSD) Board of Trustees’ 7-0 vote at the Board Meeting held on Tuesday night.
Most school districts around the area and state have already made cuts. TUSD has always had a good reserve balance above the State of California’s 3 percent requirement for Turlock’s size. TUSD had a reserve of $11 million is using $4 million from the reserve this year to cover their deficit.
Turlock schools are facing an estimated $6.5 million short fall for the 2009-10 $120 million budget due to the economy and state education cuts.
Many different ways to save money have been discussed throughout the year. Salary cuts, larger class room sizes, cutting programs, shortening the school year by 5 days, cutting teachers, and cutting administrators have all been brought up in public meetings.
There was a “golden handshake” proposal on the table that offered $20,000 or an additional 2 years of service credit towards retirement. TUSD needed 40 people to take the deal for this to work but only 22 said that they would. The proposal was pulled.
Ultimately, Turlock School Trustees appeared to have no choice but to make the tough and undesired decision to cut 96 teachers and 32 certified administrators.
Pink slips have to be sent out by March 13, 2009 to give 45 day layoff notice mandated by state law.
The 96 teachers (72 of which are elementary school teachers) and 32 certified administrators (including all deans and assistant principals) will be given pink slips as a 45 day layoff notice to be implemented in May, but do not mean they will necessarily be laid off for sure.
The TUSD Board of Trustees can decide to take other courses of action from now until May and give them the chance to not implement all or some of the layoffs.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
