Deer Valley Unified School District teachers facing job reductions

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The budget-balancing act for one Valley school district could mean that dozens of teachers will have to find new jobs.

The Deer Valley Unified School District approved its budget Wednesday night, and it's struggling with a $26 million shortfall.

That shortfall could mean pink slips for  nearly 70 teachers, mostly at the kindergarten through sixth-grade level.
