Hiring Freeze Declared by Superintendent for All District Schools and Departments

CUSD Superintendent Jeff Felix declared Thursday night a hiring freeze for the district beginning November 4th as a result of the drastic revenue loss suffered after the implementation of the new state funding formula known as the Local Control Funding Formula. He said he regrets this decision, but the current funding situation suggests an adoption of this policy without delay. It is the hope for all that this strategy will help the district avoid laying off certain employees and canceling programs in the next school year.

"We understand that this strategy will create problems for some departments and schools," said Dr. Felix. "Cooperation from all employees will be highly appreciated. For special critical hiring situations, the Superintendent will be responsible for the final decision. We sincerely hope for a brighter future."
