Teacher Layoffs

Positive Trend

In spring 2013, the 30 largest districts issued only 848 preliminary layoff notices—or less than 1% of the teaching force—by March 15, the deadline mandated by state law. This was a substantial reduction from just two years earlier, when the same districts issued preliminary layoff notices to 10,854 teachers—or 11% of the teaching force. However, statewide an estimated 27,000 teachers who have been laid off in the past five years have not been rehired.

This school district did not issue preliminary layoff notices in Spring 2013.

Instructional Days

Positive Trend

Eighteen out of California’s 30 largest districts have a school year of 180 days, which was the minimum required by law until 2009, when the Legislature allowed school districts to lower the minimum to 175 days. Two districts are within one day of the 180- day threshold. However, six are still at the 175-day level.

The number of instructional days in this school district's school year is back to the pre-recession minimum level of 180 days.

The number of instructional days in this school district's school year is between 176 and 179 days.

K-3 Class Sizes

Negative Trend

California’s ambitious Class Size Reduction program, intended to bring K-3 class sizes down to an average of 1 teacher for every 20 students, continues to unravel. Eleven districts had larger classes in two or more K-3 grades in 2012-13 than in 2011-12. Twelve districts now have 30 or more students in all K-3 grades, and another three have 28 or more. Some bright spots are that three districts—including the state’s two largest, Los Angeles Unified and San Diego Unified—have been able to keep class sizes to 24 students or fewer in all of their K-3 classes. But the 1:20 teacher-student ratio that was in place five years ago in every district has disappeared. Only one district—Stockton Unified— reported having a class size of 20 students, and that was only in kindergarten.

This school district has three or more K- 3 grades with 24 or less students per teacher.

This school district has three or more K-3 grades with between 25 to 29 students per teacher .

This school district has three or more K-3 grades with 30 or more students per teacher.

This category doesn’t apply to this school district because it does not serve grades K-3. For Fresno Unified, grades K-1 have 26 students, and grades 2-3 have 30 students.

School Counselors

Negative Trend

The total number of counselors in the 30 districts declined by 628 since before the Great Recession. Thirteen districts reported having fewer counselors compared to the previous year, and 27 districts still have fewer counselors than they had at the start of the recession. However, few districts issued layoff notices to counselors in any significant numbers in 2012-13.

This school district has more counselors in the 2012/13 school year than prior to the recession 2007/08.

Mt. Diablo and Twin Rivers have special circumstances that preclude making a comparison with 2007-08.

School Security

Negative Trend

The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012 raised anxieties among students, parents, and teachers regarding school security, and put pressure on districts to reassess their safety plans. Twenty-seven of the 30 districts reviewed their safety plans, and 19 made changes to their plans. Thirteen increased security measures, from adding peepholes in classroom doors and installing camera systems to improving ID badge systems for employees and increasing visits of police officers and other law enforcement personnel.

This school district reported reviewing its safety plan and making changes to its safety procedures following the Sandy Hook killings.

Summer Programs

Mixed Trend

Sixteen of the 30 districts surveyed indicated that they would keep their 2013 programs at last year’s level—but those levels in most cases were drastically downsized from where they were at the start of the recession. Seven districts indicated that they would have to cut their programs even further compared to the summer of 2012. Another seven districts were planning to expand their summer programs in the summer of 2013. Cutbacks in summer programs mean that schools lose an important resource for students who are struggling academically and may be in danger of failing to graduate.

This school district reported expanded summer programs in 2013 as it did in 2012.

This school district reported the same level of summer programs in 2013 as it did in 2012.

School Enrollment

Mixed Trend

Enrollments in 17 of the state’s 30 largest school districts have declined since 2007-08, reducing state funding based on attendance while overhead and other costs remain fixed or rise. During this period, statewide enrollment has decreased by 1%, but in many districts significantly more than that. On the other hand, enrollments in 10 of the districts have increased, which has helped those districts better manage the economic crisis during the past five years.

Enrollment has increased in this district since the 2007/08 school year.

Enrollment at this school district is substantially the same as in the 2007/08 school year.

Unemployment Rate

Positive Trend

Unemployment in California has eased in communities across the state from the seasonally unadjusted rate of 12.1% in April 2010 to 8.5% in April 2013. Rates have declined in the communities served by all of the 30 largest districts. However, in 14 of them unemployment rates were higher than the statewide average of 8.5%, in some cases significantly so.

Unemployment in the primary city served by this school district as of April 2013 is less than 7.5%.

Unemployment in the primary city served by this school district as of April 2013 is between 7.5% and 9.5%.

Foreclosures and Defaults

Positive Trend

The number of housing foreclosures has declined dramatically from its peak at the height of the housing crisis. In 24 school districts, foreclosures had declined by at least 50%, including seven districts where they had declined by more than 70%. However, statewide almost 100,000 households were foreclosed on, and nearly 150,000 families received notices in 2012. Statewide, the number of foreclosures dropped by 59%. However, more than 100,000 California households were foreclosed on, and nearly 150,000 households that were three months or more behind in their mortgage payments received notices of default in 2012. Many more families are still coping with the long-term economic and psychological effects of foreclosures that occurred during the past five years.

Foreclosures in the community served by the school district have declined more than 60% since 2008.

Childhood Poverty

Negative Trend

Nearly all of the state’s 30 largest school districts are enrolling more students living in poverty than before the Great Recession. In 2011, a higher proportion of students were living in poverty in 26 out of the state’s 30 largest districts than in 2007-08, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. In 2007-08, 51% of California’s public school students were poor enough to qualify for the federal free and reduced-price meals program. By 2011-12, that proportion had grown to 58%. From an educator’s perspective, this is a cause for concern because of the high correlation between family income levels and academic achievement.

The change in children living at or below the federal poverty level between 2007 and 2011 was less than 5 percentage points.

The change in children living at or below the federal poverty level between 2007 and 2011 was between 5 and 9 percentage points.

The change in children living at or below the federal poverty level between 2007 and 2011 was 10 percentage points or more.

Because Twin Rivers only became a district in 2008-09, we are unable to make comparisons on this stress factor for this district.

Health Coverage

Positive Trend

In 19 of the state’s 30 largest districts, more children under the age of 18 have health coverage in 2011 than in 2008. In all 30 school districts, the vast majority of children have coverage of some kind. However, in eight districts the proportion of children lacking health coverage is in the double digits. The overall improved coverage also obscures deeper health challenges, such as lack of access to regular dental and vision care, and high-risk behaviors such as drinking, smoking, drug use, and poor eating habits.

Percentage of children without health care coverage declined between 2008 and 2011.

Percentage of children without health care coverage did not substantially change between 2008 and 2011.
