I understand there's some rule that CA teachers have to be notified of the possibility of being laid off by March 15. How does this work? Do they have to give you a letter that is addressed directly to you? Is a letter addressed to all staff considered the official notice? I also heard about a deadline in May? Can someone explain the whole process to me? I did receive a memo addressed to all staff discussing definite layoffs within the district, but I don't know if I'm supposed to consider this my official notice? This is my first year of teaching, so I'm definitely on the chopping block Does anyone have any advice?
