LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Clark County School District is getting ready to cut its budget, and teachers who could be in danger of losing their jobs could be looking to shift to open positions before layoffs come.
School officials haven't yet specified how deep the cuts will be, but principals are planning to submit proposals for trimmed school budgets soon.
Martha Tittle, the district's chief human resources officer, says teachers and other employees will know by April 1 if their jobs might be cut.
Tittle says layoffs could come in mid-May.
John Jasonek, executive director of the Clark County Education
Association, says principals will likely suggest cuts of up to 500 teachers districtwide. But Jasonek says most of the teachers will find other jobs within the district.
