The Riverside Unified School District board will meet at 8 a.m. Tuesday to consider final layoff notices for 200 teachers.

The board will meets in the first floor conference room of the district offices at 3380 14th St., Riverside.

State law sets a May 15 deadline for districts to give teachers final layoff notices, although they have until June 30 to adopt budgets. The district had sent more than 400 preliminary layoff notices before a March 15 deadline as part of an effort to close a $49 million budget gap.

The Inland area had the biggest growth in Latino population of any metropolitan area in the U.S. in the 2000s and had one of the biggest losses of white, non-Hispanic residents, a new report found.

The study, released Saturday by the Brookings Institution, in Washington, D.C., also concluded that the region had one of the least-educated work forces in the nation, at a time when an increasing number of jobs require a college degree. The report compared the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas between 2000 and 2008. Most data were from the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual survey of 3 million households. The Inland area includes all of Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Six years ago, he did just that, dividing his time evenly between the western and eastern portions of the 63rd District – which spans Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, San Antonio Heights, Redlands, Loma Linda, Grand Terrace and parts of Fontana, San Bernardino, Highland, Yucaipa, Moreno Valley and Riverside.
