A standing room only crowd again packed the Alhambra Unified School District board meeting Tuesday night to decry the loss of more valued personnel. In March it was the adult ESL program; this time it was librarians, bus drivers, custodians and others. In the audience was Terry Cannon, an Alhambra High School employee of the year whom the LA Times profiled as a victim in “California, home of the never-ending school budget cuts.” In all the board approved 35 staff reductions. Cannon was among the three library technical assistants. Other cuts included three health assistants, 10 custodians and 17 general bus drivers.
