The Dallas school district warns hundreds of teachers that they must improve or risk being terminated.
Wired PR News – The Dallas Independent School District (DISD) has given an ultimatum to hundreds of teachers that their contracts may not be extended if their performance does not improve. As reported by CBS 11 News, the district sent out letters to approximately 600 low performing teachers in an effort to transition to using shorter contracts.
As noted in the report, many teachers within the district are angered by the purported changes. Tiffany Linwood is quoted by CBS 11 News as stating, “They’re telling me that my teaching career with DISD could possibly be over… And it comes as a shock and disappointment because this is my life.”
Dale Kaiser with the NEA-Dallas employees association is quoted in the report as stating that the teachers so late into the school year, “have no real opportunity to improve their CEIs… I’m getting a lot of calls about this. People are upset.”
