Just months ago more than 7,000 teachers got formal notices that they would be laid off, according to the Arizona Education Association.

About 850 have since been rehired by Valley school districts.

It's not clear yet if the state will have the funding for the rest because the budget still hasn't been passed.

The deadline is next Tuesday.

Most of the laid off teachers are younger because union rules mandate layoffs be done by seniority.
