Oakland school district officials say they plan to cancel more layoff notices that were slated for hundreds of teachers back in March.

The Oakland Tribune reports that the school district plans to spare more than 80 percent of the full-time positions that faced elimination. Now, only 35 kindergarten through 12th grade jobs could be slashed because of budget cuts.

About a dozen teachers without proper certification to teach English learning students will also receive layoff notices.
