The Madera Unified School District voted unanimously to hand out pink slips to more than a hundred employees.The layoff notices affect 68 teaching positions and 49 other positions.

District officials are hoping dozens of teachers will accept early retirement which would reduce the number of actual layoffs for the next school year.
