Board Meeting Date: April 12, 2010 Agenda Item: Resolution #1 STAFF REPORT - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY SUBJECT:
Professional Staff Layoff List
Presenter(s): John Sprangers I.
Overall Content/Purpose of Presentation: The board is required to provide written notice of layoff to teachers by April 15th of each school year. Administration is presenting the list to the board with a brief summary of the need for laying off professional staff. Board Motion Needed (if any) A board vote will be needed to approve the layoff list. Major Points in this Report: A.
Pursuant to Article 13 of the OEA collective bargaining agreement “Permanent Reduction in Staff,” “written notice of layoff shall be provided no later than April 15th of the school year preceding the school year layoff is to occur.”
The teachers whose names appear on the layoff list have been tendered contracts for the 2010-11 school year. However, due to a reduction in staff at the high school level, the restructuring of East High, and in an effort to provide the board with some flexibility as it moves forward in reconciling the 2010-11 budget is placing 26.6 FTE of professional staff (of our current 799 FTE) contracts on layoff status.
The reduction of the high school staff is a result of increases across-the-board in class sizes. This increase has resulted in classes not running. A list of classes which will not run is attached.
The layoff list will be under regular scrutiny and revision as the needs of the district become clearer with each passing week. The list will be reduced when retirements, resignations, new job shares, and leaves of absence, occur. Many of these pieces of information are yet to be finalized; therefore, the layoff list likely includes more names than will be necessary once our staffing needs are finalized. Once it is clear that an individual will be needed next year, that person will be removed from the layoff list. Our goal is to remove people as soon as possible so as to reassure them of their contract status for 2010-11. The teachers will be meeting with administration representatives to review the rights and responsibilities associated with layoff status and to provide them with a reasonable prognosis of their return from layoff status prior to the start of the 2010-11 school year. The layoff list represents seniority status and is in no way a reflection of teacher performance.
If a teacher is not recalled to active status for the 2010-11 school year, he/she remains on the layoff list with rights to recall for a period of two (2) years.
Impact on District Goals: OASD will align human and financial resources to meet student program and service needs.
Budget/Financial Impact The list is the result of earlier board action to increase class sizes and restructure East High School and, in turn, reduce the budget. The impact to the budget will occur when the actual number of teaching FTE to be reduced is finally determined. At this point the identified number of FTE being reduced is approximately 20.
Costs: Salary/Benefits/Other Less: New revenues or cost reductions applicable to program Net Budget Impact
Does Board of Education action require an addition, deletion or change to policies?
