Trustees Erik Howell and Georgie O’Connor voted against the layoffs.
The district faces a $5 million cut from its $52 million general fund budget in the 2010-11 school year. Trustees may decide at a future meeting to lay off nearly two dozen classified employees. The personnel cuts would save Lucia Mar about $2.3 million.
This week was the deadline, as required by state law, for issuing the layoff notices. The employees would be let go at the end of the school year, though the district could hire them back at the beginning of the next school year.
