Many of the EPISD employees are afraid to speak up in public.
This note came in from one of them:
Rumor is that tenure/seniority are out the window and principals are getting to “pick” which means if you challenged your principal in any way, you are in danger of getting cut. Each secondary campus estimated to lose 6-10 teachers. The reason they might be getting away with it is because we are a District of Innovation BS.
I know…was displaced at my Elementary campus and I know I was not the last one in.
Can’t seem to get a position in another district because I have many years of service and my salary is too high….hmmmm. If I could retire, I would.
Question: What happens to the teachers on the “displaced” list if they don’t find a position for them?
They used to be sent to the Science Resource Center and now that’s a goner too.
I smell a RIF in disguise or a bigger one in the future. We had one about 5 years ago with central office staff getting slips to either accept a demotion or leave.
