Things are also tough in Rohnert Park. Sonoma County's third largest school district Tuesday night approved layoff notices for 28 full-time positions.

The Cotati-Rohnert Park School Board needs to cut $5 million. It is negotiating with employee unions over deep salary and benefit cuts.

Since 2008, the district has already closed schools, shortened the school year and increased class sizes.
