Heading to the Finish Line for 09-10

April 9, 2010

As of April 12th, we will have 46 student days left (even fewer for our Seniors!) in the 2009-2010 school year.  This has been another fast paced year that has seen its share of outstanding student and staff accomplishments – with more to come this spring.  It has also been a year that has challenged Saline Area Schools as we work through the financial issues facing our school district.

The next 9 weeks are very important for our students, staff, and community.  For students, this is a key time for growth and the culmination of their learning.  For staff, this is a time to focus on finishing the year strong and to reflect on what adjustments should be considered for the next year. For our community, this is a time to consider difficult choices regarding the future of our district.

There is a great deal of work to complete for all of us as we head toward the end of the school year.

    Mr. Graden – I heard 60 pink slips were handed out this morning. Is this true? If so, how do parents find out which teachers were dismissed? Thank you.

    Today, 63 certified staff members will be notified that that they are being place on layoff status for the 2010-2011 school year, pending Board of Education adoption of a resolution for reduction of staff. The action is on the agenda at the regular Board of Education meeting tonight at 6:30pm in the Liberty School Media Center.

    Wow. That is so sad. Are these all non-tenured teachers? Will the list of teachers be presented at the meeting if the board adopts the resolution tonight?

    It includes both tenured and non-tenured staff. The names will be read at the Board of Education meeting.
