To offset the damage done by state budget cuts, parents in Cupertino have raised enough money to save 107 teacher's jobs in their school district.

On Friday afternoon, they will announce they reached their $2 million goal that will allow teacher to keep their jobs and will help keep class sizes small.

The fundraising campaign, "Their Future is Now", collected donations from local businesses and residents. Pink slips of all 107 teachers from grades K-through-8 will be rescinded.

Teachers and district employees have already agreed to taking five furlough during the next school year.

Saturday is the deadline for schools to either rescind or go ahead with layoff notices.
