The Board of Education of the Los Angeles Unified School District this week approved plans to layoff as many as 6,850 workers in the upcoming school year to close a $596 million budget gap.

LAUSD is sending layoff notices to 3,477 teachers and 3,373 administrators and support staff. That’s about 2,000 fewer teacher layoffs than the district expected a few weeks ago.
