For ALL SGTA who attended the Tuesday, March 26th School Board Meeting at 6:00. p.m. and were part of the discussion regarding the Dual Immersion Mandarin program.
SGTA Teachers spoke on various issues and we heard that San Gabriel parents questioned the school board's recent decisions. Read below to find out why it was important for you to attend and stand alongside teachers and parents in our quest to do what's right for our students!
SGTA Executive Board
What's going on at Jefferson?
Due to the school board's decision to increase the staffing ratio, a P.E. teacher will be transferred to an elementary site and 5 "6th grade teachers" will be responsible for teaching physical education, as well as teaching their core classes. Because of this new schedule, some 6th grade students may not have access to the Fitness Lab.
Is this an optimal learning condition for our students?
What's going on at Wilson?
In an effort to combat declining enrollment, the school board will discuss the Dual Immersion Mandarin program at Wilson. Our Superintendent and school board members have decided that this program will begin in the Fall and the district made NO ATTEMPT to seek input from Wilson parents. Curriculum has not been purchased and the planning to implement and sustain this program has been subpar. This program will only serve incoming kinder students and is projected to cost is in the upwards of $1,000,000.
Is this the best decision for our students when we are facing cuts to existing programs and staffing?
So what about our other schools?
- GAB 1 Single subject teacher laid off
- JMS 1 Single subject teacher laid off
- 3 Multiple Subject teachers laid off
- 3 teachers displaced to other sites
- 2 TOSA's are returning to classrooms
- Staffing ratio's increased by 1 grades 4-12
