I'm going to lose my job in one year. Help me decide what to do next!

As my title says, I'm going to lose my job on June 30th, 2015. I'm not sure what to do in order to land on my feet, so I'd like some advice, other then save money (I am, $700-$900 per month) and apply for jobs (I also am, but my field is pretty thin, job-wise).
I see my options as: 1) continue to apply for jobs for the next year and hope for the best
2) continue to work at my present position but also go to grad school in a different profession (I'm pretty sure this will work and I get a free class every semester at the university I work at).

Although I'm leaving my present employer partially for performance reasons, I do have good references and an impressive (in my opinion) CV. My fear is that I will go to school while also applying for jobs and then get a job offer after racking up tuition for a degree I'm never going to complete. Also, I'm pretty unhappy where I live and I would love to avoid spending another two years here.
However, I don't want to rely on getting a job without a backup plan since my job hunt to this point hasn't yielded much in the way of positive results. So, help? Thanks!
