Whenever a determination has been made that there is a lack of funds or lack of work:

(a) The SSPI or designee may, without regard to area of layoff, separate from service any part-time exempt staff, substitute teacher, or summer session exempt staff. Such persons, if performing the same or comparable work as that performed by a pre-tenure or tenure employee, shall be separated before any pre-tenure or tenure employee whose work is the same or comparable and who desires to continue in employment is laid off under this article.

(b) Layoff of pre-tenure and tenure employees shall be by teaching service areas of layoff within a special school. Teaching service areas of layoff shall be developed according to the educational needs of students and the operational needs of the special school. Employees in a teaching service area of layoff shall be laid off in the following order:

(1) Pre-tenure employees shall be separated without regard to length of service.

(2) Tenure employees shall be separated in the inverse order of their length of employment as an employee appointed exempt under California State Constitution, article VII, section 4(i).
