The Lodi Unified School District board stopped short of eliminating 28 classified positions Tuesday — many of which are part-time interpreters — and instead sent the recommendation back to district staff for a clearer financial picture of what these cuts represent.

In separate action, trustees did vote to cut three preschool teaching positions. All but one are currently vacant.

    You can thank your great political leadership for enacting legislations such as these. Would you expect anything less from our old, worn out same olds?

    Good points Mr. Maple.
    It seems to me translator services or similar to other "for fee" services and anyone needing this service should be prepared to pay for it.
    This "entitlement" mentality makes my hair hurt.

    It should be the goal of all school districts to divest themselves from teaching english to non-speaking persons. ESl, ELL and those programs associated with this form of education should be taught outside of the current system, as they do in many other nations around the world. The California education system is burdened with trying to teach 259 languages and dialects in their classrooms. It is time for the system to change. English...which is the language of this country...should be privatized and taught to and by those who know their language best. This would create jobs in those societies and would give the learners a better pathway to an education.
