More than 100 teachers, 83% of them rated proficient or excellent, are still in limbo as we open the school year. Instead of placing these professionals in real vacancies, the department has assigned them in “suitable professional capacity” to a variety of positions — as substitute teachers, co-teachers, and the like. Each of these teachers is experienced, vetted, recruited and trained by the district.\
There will be a meeting at the BTU on Tuesday, September 16 at 4:15 PM for all excessed staff who have not yet been assigned to a full time teaching position. BTU staff will be present to answer questions and provide an update.
