We have been hearing that the district has made funding cuts to library aides at some elementary schools and is forcing schools to pay for one day a week for nurses by coercing school sites to choose which positions they can afford to fund.
LAUSD officials are attempting to pit us against each other, pointing to our contract as the reason for draconian cuts. We will never support any budget cuts that impact quality of instruction of support services for our students.
Let us be clear: UTLA is adamantly opposed to any cuts to student programs and supportive services. All positions are important, and all must be funded!
Sign and send this to Supt. Austin Beutner
