The Mt. Diablo School Board is expected to vote tonight on cutting 11 non-teaching positions and scaling back the workdays of about 125 school office workers.
These cuts are seen as a compromise worked out after the district said it needed to slash the jobs of 23 school secretaries to save $1.1 million a year, the Contra Costa Times reports. The district needs to cut $31 million over the next four years, and is also looking at instituting furlough days and eliminating three days from this school year.
The new reductions would save more than $1.4 million and specifically involve cutting the positions of three operations and maintenance workers, eight adult education employees and reducing the hours and workdays of elementary school secretaries, office managers, and middle and high school office employees.
The meeting takes place 7:30 p.m. at the district offices, 1936 Carlotta Drive, Concord.
