Sixty-one first-year teachers will receive dismissal notices Tuesday from the Oswego school district.The Oswego School Board voted Monday to pass the second phase of its deficit-reduction plan, which includes the layoffs.

The district faces an estimated budget shortfall of $12.6 million. The board passed the first phase of its cost-savings plan earlier this month. That cut about one-third of the district's support personnel.
