What process is happening? I think recounting using the Running Start students eligible to be counted. Or something else?
The GHS PTSA sums it up (bold mine):
- The district has identified a potential issue with how students are counted - specifically the matter seems to relate to Running Start students which have been included in the enrollment numbers in previous years. The difference is significant as it seems to be the border of keeping/losing a teacher.
- Though the district is re-evaluating the numbers next week, they still want Ted (Howard) to name a teacher today.
- There is still some lack of clarity around whether a core vs. non-core class teacher must be cut. (I was told by SPS Communications that no, a core teacher would not be cut. Hmm.
As for their next steps, they are going to continue advocating in various ways including e-mails and letters to the Seattle Times.
They are hoping the district will accept the school's numbers.
I also want to point out that, the students who may lose a class, will lose all the work/credit for that class. That is unacceptable.
I have not heard from any of the other schools about their situation.
