San Diego Unified could dip $2.5 million into the hole next spring because California is putting off payments to schools, even more than the school district had been expecting.
Its finance chief says that makes it impossible for the school district to rehire any more of its jettisoned employees. It could also force them to let go more school workers who don’t teach.
“This is a very sobering report,” Superintendent Bill Kowba said. “The common theme is incredible risk from one week to the next.”
