Have any local schools started laying off employees? Or has all this died down?

I think quite the opposite...the Legislature would not dip as deeply into the rainy day fund as was hoped...now, districts will begin to make allocations for next year. Employees will probably begin receiving notice soon...

Oh, I don't think it's dying down at all. As pobre said, I think it's just now heating up - the districts just recently got their budget information from the state, so I think the cuts are coming soon.

Whether that bill removing the class size limits passes probably will make a big difference in the number of layoffs.

I was surprised they dipped into the Rainy Day Fund, but it's only to pay the bills until August.

Cuts are coming. I have been hearing that next week is when they will begin with NISD. I know some other districts have started.

Anyone here from NEISD? I haven't heard of anyone being notified of being laid off yet and it's April already.

The latest article I see about NEISD is from March 19. NEISD is planning on cutting $50-85 million, but the article doesn't say how.

Quote:
Most school districts say they may have to let teachers go. One district is considering reducing the school week to four days, another is contemplating eliminating its police force. Just how drastic the measures the school districts will have to take may not be known until right before school is out and the legislative session comes to an end.
And that is assuming a special session isn't necessary.

I believe some school districts can go without their police forces. SAPD is desperate for more recruits though. Hopefully an extra burden won't be put on them by having to cover schools too. Maybe the laid off school district police officers will join them.

7 were laid off due to state budget cuts in East Central ISD, according to the last sentence of this article.

And as far as the rainy day fund, the legislature hasn't officially gone into it yet. The Budget hasn't passed yet.
