Each of these positions are funded by restricted federal funding that do not impact the general fund, with the exception of the LATSS position. The LATSS position is 50% funded by PAR (Peer Assistance and Review) state categorical funding which has not been swept into General Fund expenditures, and the other 50% is funded by Federal Jobs dollars. LATSS / PAR is an Education Code requirement for assisting new certificated teachers and the function cannot be completely eliminated.
