No layoffs for TUSD librarians or counselorsby Mary Bustamante on May. 08, 2009, under Education, Local, Special
None of Tucson Unified School District’s tenured librarians or counselors will be laid off next year.
An e-mail went out Wednesday to all 75 librarians and 141 counselors who in early April received a notice of a possible reduction in force.
The notification by Interim Chief Human Resources Officer Nancy Woll said, “I understand, however, that there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding placements for next year.”
Because of budget shortfalls, some schools have opted to do without counselors and/or librarians next school year.
“All of us in Human Resources understand how difficult this is and we will be working closely with those of you who have been displaced for the next school year to bring you that certainty about your placement as soon as possible,” Woll said.
