The Plan
The San Diego Unified board is trying to get labor unions to agree to defer promised raises and extend furloughs as part of a deal that would use $32 million in added state revenue to save jobs.
The Details
The plan also sketched out some future savings and new revenues, including closing schools, selling property, more advertising and a new bond to pay for overdue repairs.
The Big Picture
The school district is now staring down an estimated $114 million in cuts and hundreds of layoffs. More state money could be coming, but fears of future deficits led it to reassess raises.
