District rescinds more termination notices

BURBANK -- Burbank Unified School District officials confirmed

late Tuesday that as many as 27 additional preliminary termination

notices given to teachers were rescinded as those facing layoffs


presented their cases to an administrative law judge.

The district previously rescinded 160 of the 252 notices initially

sent, citing clearer budget information from state officials. The

district is required to notify any teacher who could be eliminated by

March 15, school officials said.

According to Burbank Teachers Assn. officials, the district

rescinded 27 notices after teachers presented evidence to a judge

that their seniority was incorrectly calculated. BUSD Supt. Gregory


Bowman confirmed that the notices were rescinded because of seniority


In all, 65 teachers and other district employees facing

termination presented their cases to a judge Monday and Tuesday. BTA

officials did not know when any rulings would be handed down. While

the judge could recommend that more of the notices be rescinded, any

ruling is not binding on the district, officials said.
