More than 40 teachers receive pink slips in Del Mar district

More than 44 preliminary pink slip notices were handed out to permanent teachers in the Del Mar Union School District on March 1. An additional 19 pink slips went out to temporary teacher who had signed one-year contracts, said personnel technician Darlene Nadlonek.

She said the temporary notices were sent out before the March 15 date so affected teachers would be able to attend informational meetings and have some of their questions answered.

Some of the Extended Studies Curriculum teachers will likely have their pink slips rescinded because of a fundraising effort by the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation. The fundraising deadline is April 30, so the district will know in May how many teachers’ jobs can be saved.

Some of the pink slips also went to classroom teachers with less seniority than some ESC teachers, Nadlonek said.

Of the 44 permanent teachers to receive notices, 22 were classroom teachers. The district is considering changing the class size in kindergarten through sixth grade from the current ratio of 20 to 1 to a 21-1 ration and from 27 to 1 in grades 4 through 6 to 28 to 1.
