Citing a $1 billion budget deficit, Chicago Public Schools will lay off more than 2,000 employees, more than a 1,000 of them teachers, the district said Thursday night.

About half of the 1,036 teachers being let go are tenured.

The latest layoffs, which also include 1,077 school staff, are in addition to 855 employees—420 of them teachers–who were laid off last month as a result of the district’s decision to close 49 elementary schools and a high school program.
