The Trenton Times reports on protests from both parents and the Trenton Education Association regarding a reduction of 400 employees through both attrition and lay-offs, in spite of recommendations that more staff to teach electives.
One interesting development:
Leaders of the TEA and the paraprofessionals’ union said they believed the child study teams that evaluate the needs of special education students had been improperly instructed to change students’ Individualized Education Plans to reduce the number of teachers required.
Really? If true, the district would be seriously out of compliance with I.D.E.A. since changes in I.E.P.’s can only be made by the individual Child Study Teams which include parents of the child with disabilities.
