Lodi Unified School District officials believe they may have found a way to break the ongoing cycle of teacher layoffs, which has resulted in a decrease in programs and an increase in class sizes.

"One of the main goals is to get out of this layoff cycle, and I think we can do that," board President George Neely said, adding that he believes the budget will be balanced with an ongoing deficit.

    Humm... deficit spending is the solution? If so, they are playing with fire.
    The government does that but the they have taxing authority and can print money ... It would be good for the board to publicly communicate specifics on this deficit spending ...maybe it would be better to be a tad bit more conservative and live within our means that existing revenues pays for... if lay offs are needed because there is no money, so be it... maybe supporting policies that generate more revenue, and supporting political candidates that bring more business and taxes to our state would be more constructive... and supporting local politicians and policies that attract more jobs to Lodi, which normally increases student population,which results in increased state payout per student, would be a step in the right direction.
    The only significant thing I see, is how can we increase taxes and borrow more money... reducing school cell phones was not an answer... it was a distraction.
