Vancouver School Board Chair Mike Lombardi says 137 non-teaching staff will receive notice of position reductions over the next week.
But those 137 non teaching staff can apply for positions that open up under the collective agreement.
Official layoff notices can only be issued after the year end staffing process is complete.
On 37 teaching staff receiving reduction notices, Lombardi says none will result in layoffs.
He says those 37 teachers can apply for other positions during the year end staffing and transfer process.
The Vancouver School Board is dealing with a $24-million budget shortfall.
