District must inform workers by mid-April if their jobs are at risk

From The Arizona Republic: About 5,500 employees at 120 school districts in Arizona have received layoff notices warning them they may not have jobs next school year. About 4,000 of those employees are teachers. Most school districts have issued layoff notices because they still do not have a state budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. They also had to comply with a state law requiring them to tell teachers by April 15 whether their jobs might be cut.
