Glendale school officials released a statement saying that unprecedented California budget cuts are forcing layoffs additional layoffs after Tuesday.
"These cuts have been prioritized to keep them away from the instructional programs at school sites to the largest degree possible. Many positions at the district office have been eliminated and consolidated over the years," the district said in a prepared statement.
Structural deficit from 2011-2012 and the pending structural deficit for 2012-2013, forced unavoidable administrative cuts at some schools, the district said.
"As a result of this annual review process, GUSD has consolidated positions and reduced administrative staffing to decrease two elementary assistant principal positions, one middle school assistant principal position, half of a high school assistant principal position, and one coordinator position," the district said.
The district will not have a public information officer for the 2012-2013 school year and responsibilities will be redistributed among other staff members, officials said.
