The Laguna Beach Unified School District passed a milestone this week. It wasn?t something that happened; it was what didn?t happen ? pink slips. Sunday is the deadline by which public schools must notify staff of possible future layoffs. The layoffs don?t actually go into effect right then, but teachers and other employees are put on notice that they may face the loss of their jobs by the end of the school year. So this was the week when school district officials had to sit down and decide what, if any, job cuts would be necessary to balance their books next year.

No layoffs planned at Laguna Unified Laguna Beach Unified School District announced last week that, for the second consecutive year, no faculty or staff will be handed pink slips. The deadline for announcing layoffs in the public schools was Monday. Unlike most school districts in California, Laguna Beach is a ?basic aid? district, and receives most of its funding from local property taxes instead of relying on a per-pupil allotment from the state. For districts that depend on the state for funds, it?

Mike Swanson The Laguna Beach school officials unanimously agreed to issue layoff notices for every principal and more than 30% of the district's teachers in its meeting Tuesday with the support of a room full of teachers, including some expecting pink slips in the morning. The pervasive sentiment that evening was that the root of the problem lies in Sacramento, not in Laguna Beach.

'Tis the season of the pink slip. As the economy does a dive the pink slips begin floating throughout the nation -- heavily in Southern California. They are a frightening, disheartening and maddening reality. As we learn that the Laguna Beach Unified School District has handed out preliminary layoff notices to its principals and 30% of its teachers, the first reaction is shock and disappointment. The fact is, regardless of the final budget decision, the district will not layoff all those people, but even with just a few layoffs, disappointment is to be expected.

The Laguna Beach Unified School District has not issued any pink slips, despite statewide teacher layoffs. The district’s “basic aid” designation means that it receives its primary income from county property taxes, rather than state coffers, and is not as subject to the state’s budget emergency. Laguna and Newport-Mesa are the only two such districts in the county; many others, including adjacent Capistrano Unified and Saddleback Valley Unified, recently sent notices to hundreds of teachers and staff to meet $4 billion in state-mandated cuts.

At least one outpatient program offered at South Coast Medical Center will be eliminated under Mission Hospital, the Coastline Pilot has learned. The hospital is in the process of transferring ownership from Adventist Health Systems to Mission Hospital, part of St. Joseph Health System. The state attorney general’s office is expected to issue a decision June 12 on the fate of the hospital. The hospital’s cardiac outpatient program will no longer be available at the Laguna Beach hospital and those patients will have to go to Mission Hospital for treatment, Mission spokeswoman Kelsey Martinez said.

Thank you city of Laguna Beach Careful, well trained, cautious. No matter, accidents happen and when they do you want the Laguna Beach Police and paramedics to respond. Recently, I was involved in a serious accident in the canyon. The response of police and paramedics was exemplary. Officer Ed White was the first to arrive, I was on the roadside in a complete daze. For a while he seemed like a superman, trying to comfort us (me and the other driver)

Mike Swanson The school board met Tuesday for the first time since issuing preliminary pink slips to more than 50 district staff members, and the basic plan arrived at in the meeting was to continue planning, with more emphasis on paring. In the "worst-case" scenario proposed by Gov. Gray Davis, the Laguna Beach Unified School District's budget is scheduled to drop from $22,887,521 to $16,453,253. Supt. Theresa Daem and the board of education continue to hope the "equitable case" scenario they've proposed, which would involve budget reductions but the fewest final layoff notices, will replace Davis' proposed budget.
