The Murrieta Valley Unified school board will consider cutting more than 100 teaching positions and furloughing dozens of non-union employees at a special meeting Thursday.

The 5 p.m. meeting will be in the district support center, 41870 McAlby Court in Murrieta.

The proposal calls for administrators and other non-union personnel, including school counselors, psychologists and classified managers, to take eight furlough days in 2011-12. That is the equivalent of a 4.17 percent pay cut, a staff report states.

The school board also will consider cutting 112.6 teaching positions, resulting in an increase in class sizes, the staff report states.
