FUSD contracts and financial woes

14 May

Fremont Unified School District is suffering some financial problems. Apparently, FUSD is the only district in the state with a “No lay off” clause in the contract. Here is the excerpt:

The story is more complicated in the Fremont Unified School District, possibly the only district in the state with a no-layoff clause in its teachers contract. As a result, every year the district hires scores of teachers on temporary contracts, then notifies them all that their jobs could be ending. So Fremont sent out 250 teacher pink slips, union President Brannin Dorsey said. The district enrollment is growing, so nearly every year most of those teachers are rehired, although many seek out jobs elsewhere in the meantime. – Mercury News 5/14/12

However, the FUSD can raise the school class sizes, which they apparently did. Read about it here.
