Three dozen people at Portland Public Schools are losing their jobs weeks after the district promised to hire staff.

Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero announced the layoffs Monday afternoon.

He blamed the cuts on next year’s budget.

Thirty-five positions at the administrative level, including several leadership positions, will be eliminated.

According to Guerrero, there are no teacher cuts.
