But it's a bit confusing. It includes certified staff - that's teachers, assistant principals, school psychologists and social workers - whose contracts were terminated as of June 30 because of budget cuts. It also includes an unspecified number of people whose contracts are not being renewed for other reasons.

Others who were laid off are not on the list if they're not certified. That group ranges from maintenance workers to central-office administrators.
The CMS list does not specify the reasons teachers were cut. While some were cut for weak performance, others were targeted because of their job situation, such as rehired retirees.

The people on the list have already been notified as part of the cuts approved and reported earlier, CMS officials say.
More cuts may be coming as the state's budget picture worsens.
The Observer has requested more specifics from CMS about who has lost jobs in the first round of cuts. We're also working on a version of this list that will let you search by school, name or position. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Superintendent Peter Gorman just offered this breakdown for layoffs of teachers and other certified faculty: 161 had below-standard job ratings, 72 had licensure deficiencies, 99 were retirees receiving pensions, 14 were interim hires, 294 had "end of year" contracts, 16 were psychologists and social workers and 42 were "not placed from districtwide pool" (that is, people whose positions were eliminated but were eligible to be picked up by other schools). He notes that adds up to more than 855 because 12 fell into two categories: "i.e. they may have been below standard but also were an end of year employee."
