Los Alamitos School District employees held a rally Friday against coronavirus-related staff job cuts they say were unfair.

The protest stemmed from a notice they received last Friday that stated nearly 300 district employees could soon lose their jobs.

Andrew Pulver, the school district’s superintendent, says the jobs being targeted are not certified teachers, but rather certain classified employees that he said are not needed in a distance learning environment.

The employees protesting say they believe the district could still find ways to use them; their union is looking for ways to fight the action.
