Eugene district issues 108 layoff notices to teachers

EUGENE, Ore. - Eugene 4J School District teachers got notice Friday if they will be laid off as part of efforts to balance the district budget.

The district sent out notices to 108 teachers and other instructional staff on Friday, said Kerry Delf with Eugene 4J. Many of those who received layoff notices work part-time.

The layoffs add up to the equivalent of 84 full-time jobs.

The layoff notices were based on seniority, Delf said.

The numbers could change depending on the state's next budget forecast and the outcome of a vote in May on a proposed City of Eugene income tax to support Eugene 4J and Bethel schools.
