UPDATE: Deadline passe to balance the CCSD budget, teacher strike still looms

Time is up for principals to cut education spending in their schools by $17 million. Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara's deadline to turn in a balanced budget was set for July 30, and just in time as school starts in two weeks. The budgets will take time for the district to process. The dean's union Executive Director Stephen Augspuger says dean positions could still be eliminated by principals. The teacher's union is still threatening a strike. CCEA President John Vellardita says if any of the prinicpals' cuts affect teacher positions, class sizes, or class resources -- they will call a district wide strike at the beginning of the year.
