LAUSD officials OK settlement that could end seniority-based layoffsDaily News | By Connie Llanos
After months of negotiations, Los Angeles Unified officials unanimously approved a landmark legal settlement Tuesday that could end the district's practice of basing layoff decisions on seniority.
The proposed settlement has to be finalized by a judge but is not subject to negotiation with the teachers union.
According to district officials, the settlement would protect up to 45 LAUSD schools from suffering any teacher layoffs during budget cuts.
