LAUSD to change layoff policy at some schools

LOS ANGELES The changes are the result of an October lawsuit settlement, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups, that claimed teacher layoffs disproportionately impacted low-income campuses.

Many such campuses employ a higher number of newer teachers who are the first to be laid off according to seniority policy.

One school lost more than half its staff in the past two years due to layoffs. The ACLU says layoffs should be spread throughout the district more evenly.
