One teacher at Garfield was put on administrative leave after a school choir trip to New Orleans earlier this year.
Two teachers at Ballard are on administrative leave.
I normally might not put this up with so few details but there are a couple of concerns.
One, Garfield has had several issues around teacher supervision and school trips. The last one created upheaval around Title IX issues. And now there's another one. Hearing from a couple of parents, there is concern this teacher might not come back and apparently, is well-liked.
For Ballard, it seems odd that two teachers would be put on administrative leave at just about the same time.
But the district will say nothing as "it's a personnel" matter. Again, I get that but it does create confusion for students when teachers suddenly disappear.
