Health care costs are being blamed for a possible new round of cutbacks in the Mt. Diablo School District.

The district says it may need to lay off more than 20 "maintenance and operation workers," and cut the hours of at least 41 "school secretaries," by half.

The school board meets tonight and has already set November 30th as a potential target date for the cuts.
