Unfortunately the District doesn't give the new public relations lady anything to publish except things that show them in a positive light. This is the first time that the public has been notified I bet. Well you are correct the four schools you are referring to are impacted so completely that they didn't have enough food or classes to put them in. The dist has been stretching the truth about the capacity of the schools. Nothing has changed. Change will only come when the hen house is cleaned. Hopefully the mella- roos parentss will get motivated to make change.
The responses are interesting. I agree with them but would like to add more information.
One can hold the school board members who voted for layoffs and the superintendent responsible for this.
I would also like to direct your attention to the SEA union for being responsible as well. They are enforcing that the district follows all stipulations of the contract. The results are that it's taking longer for the district to place teachers. The SEA also represents several bad teachers throughout the district that are not effected by the budget cuts due to their senority date.
Because of this, the losers in all of this are the recently hired or layed off teachers, the effective veteran teachers, the schools, students and parents in the community, and the administrators who can't get who they want teaching at their school.
The public needs to be informed. The board is responsible as well as the SEA.
