California's Mount Diablo school board is cutting $4.9 million from its special-education programs over three years to offset state budget cuts. The move will reduce special-education summer school programs and downsize contracts with some outside service providers. The district also plans to lay off 200 teachers to cut costs. The board held off on another $3.5 million in special-education cuts that would have reduced the work hours of paraprofessionals.
