The Mt. Diablo School Board voted Tuesday night to issue final layoff notices to 413 teachers and librarians.

The district says the cuts are necessary even though they'll be receiving roughly $20 million in government stimulus money.

School officials do hope a parcel tax vote next Tuesday can provide some relief.
