In certain limited circumstances, school districts can proceed with a second round of layoffs of certificated employees in addition to the March 15 layoff process. CTA expects that some school districts will attempt to proceed with such layoffs this summer. The timeline for such RIFs may be very short between the school district approving such potential RIFs and the final decision on the RIFs, which must be made by August 15. To be prepared as summer approaches, CTA Legal Services advises that you make sure that your CTA chapter has your current contact info; check that the district has your seniority correct; and make sure that all your credentials and certifications are on file with the district.
