In the wake of Beverly Hills Unified School District’s Herculean effort to transform its education model to include a dedicated middle school, at least 20 teachers are expected to lose their jobs. According to Beverly Hills Education Association (BHEA) President Ethan Smith, all teachers slated to receive a pink slip will be told by the end of this month.
While the district remains mum about informing the public as to the precise number of teachers who will receive pink slips, the BHEA has been more vocal with its members.
“Administration reports to me that they fully expect the initial number of layoff notices they give to be higher than the number of teachers who will ultimately be laid off,” Smith told members in an update this past Saturday. “The district always does this so that they have flexibility with their scheduling. If you do receive a layoff notice do not despair, yours may rescinded.”
