TUSD approves layoffs

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Layoffs are on the way for the Tucson Unified School District.

The board voted Tuesday night to lay off 108 employees next year, including teachers, counselors and librarians.

More than a third will come from Palo Verde and Rincon High Schools, because they are in a turnaround program where staffers must reapply for their jobs.

The board voted 3 to 2 in favor of the layoffs.
