On Tuesday's board meeting the trustees will be faced with sending final lay off notices to over 413 teachers and librarians, 10 Vice Principals and 2 psychologists. The Contra Costa Times has written an article about this.
Sad day to be sure.
Also, to be considered at this meeting is item 9.11 on the agenda , "Request to place California Standards Test (CST) Results on High School Transcripts." There is a discussion going on over at Paul Strange and Gary Eberhart's blog www.MDUSD.net - join in there. This item is up for "discussion only" Tuesday night, but if you have strong feelings please attend and speak during public comment.
Measure D is on the May 19th, vote YES!
