A special meeting is set for 7 p.m. tonight for the Twin Rivers Unified school board to reconsider sending preliminary pink slips to teachers and support staff before the state-mandated deadline on Friday.
The school board failed to vote March 5 on a staff recommendation to send warning notices to 74 teachers and counselors, as well as 23 support workers.
District staff members said the layoffs would save the district $9.1 million.
School districts across the state must send preliminary pink slips by March 15 to any teacher, nurse or counselor who may be laid off at the end of the school year. The deadline falls well before the state finalizes its budget, so districts usually send far more preliminary notices in March than needed, as a precautionary measure.
The meeting will be in the district board room at 5115 Dudley Blvd., North Highlands.
