No more pink slips for teachers? Officials: Over 2K laid off, more slips mailed today
2012: About 20,000 layoff notices were issued

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Thousands of teachers around the state may be receiving layoff notices today, but experts said it will be far less than in years past.
State Law requires schools districts to issue teacher pink slips by March 15, every year.
In 2012, about 20,000 layoff notices were issued.
But according to the President of California Teachers Association, only about 2,400 have been mailed out so far this year.
He said it's because voters approved Proposition 30 last year, which increased the state's sales tax to help close California's budget gap.
