The San Diego Unified school board has unanimously voted to make roughly $16 million in cuts, including $8.12 million to eliminate Superintendent Terry Grier’s pilot program for smaller classes in a selected group of 29 school and $3.94 million to eliminate smaller classes in 9th grade, an initiative used to place teachers whose layoffs were canceled last year.

The board is now weighing a slew of other cuts to close its budget gap, now estimated at $106 million, including controversial cuts such as closing small schools or removing counselors from elementary schools.

The board has already approved roughly $43 million in cuts in meetings earlier this year.

Stay tuned for more.
