Layoffs of eight employees will be considered by the Ocean View School District Board of Trustees when it meets tonight (Tuesday).
The OVSD board will be asked to eliminate seven “classified” positions due to “lack of work and/or lack of funds.”
One lead mechanic position and six bus driver spots would be eliminated at an estimated savings of $278,495.48 for the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
Additionally, the board will be asked to lay off and “terminate” the services of one unnamed certificated – teachers and others considered part of the educational function – employee with a financial savings of $61,639.
Also on agenda for tonight’s meeting the board will meet in closed session to discuss the purchase of the 4.4-acre site at Warner Avenue and Nichols Lane known as the “Wintersburg Property,” the historic site of a Japanese-American community.
The meeting will be conducted electronically via “Zoom.” The closed session will start at 5:30 p.m. and the open session at 6 p.m.
