Long Beach schools set to lay off teachers

LONG BEACH, Calif. The vote is the first step in the layoff process that the state law requires. Teachers with seniority who get layoff notices have a right to bump less senior instructors.

Earlier this year the district warned about 1,000 employees that they could lose their jobs. The number was later reduced to 849.

The district says anticipates sending another round of pink slips next month.
