San Diego Unified staffers shared updated numbers on the golden handshake tonight: The district now estimates that it will save $8.3 million next year if 85 percent of teachers who take the bonus and leave the district are replaced. It also estimates that it will save an additional $700,000 if 90 percent of all other employees who take the bonus are replaced.

The numbers are considerably lower than the estimated initial savings of $17 million that were presented to the school board just a week ago, which were based on the expectation that nearly one-third of all employees who took the bonus and left would not be replaced.
