Thankfully, a cluster parent brought this to my attention - Page 11 of the presentation.
Challenged Schools Obtain Preferential Hiring of Highly Qualified and Highly Effective Teachers
Is DCSD planning to ignore the average student? Can these students be denied the experience of a phenomenal teacher because their school does not qualify for preferential hiring of qualified and effective teachers?
As the chart below indicates, District 1 has only one school that meets the criteria for possible takeover by the State and 2 other schools that will be incorporated into this Comprehensive Plan due to their Priority and Focus Schools status.
Is it fair, or appropriate that schools that are "doing it right" and educating their students, will not have access to the "best" teachers?
Let's make sure we keep our Dunwoody cluster teachers as we know they are highly qualified and highly effective!!!
