The Coronado Unified School District is at a standstill. District Superintendent Jeff Felix declared a hiring freeze last week.
The freeze, beginning Nov. 4, is a "result of the drastic revenue loss suffered after the implementation of the new state funding formula known as the Local Control Funding Formula," the district noted on its website.
Felix said he regrets this decision, "but the current funding situation suggests an adoption of this policy without delay."
"We understand that this strategy will create problems for some departments and schools," Felix said in a statement issued Tuesday "Cooperation from all employees will be highly appreciated. For special critical hiring situation, the Superintendent will be responsible for the final decision. We sincerely hope for a brighter future."
The districts stated it hopes the freeze will help the district avoid layoffs and canceling programs in the next school year.
