Oregon City Schools will need to lay off another 20 employees next school year if a $5.9-mill emergency operating levy does not pass Nov. 2, officials said at a meeting Thursday night.
The school district would need to trim an additional $2 million from its budget if the five-year levy does not pass. Other potential cuts include eliminating career and technology programs and possibly closing an elementary school.
The levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 house about $180 a year.
The school district has slashed more than $7 million over the last three years. Last school year Oregon laid off 32 teachers.
