A FINAL THANK YOU
The last day of school is usually exciting. Teachers are typically thrilled to start summer vacation. For the most part, it was exciting. However, it was also hard for many of us at EDMS because over a dozen teachers here are entering summer vacation not knowing if they will have a job next school year. 16 of our teachers received final layoff notices. Only 4 were rescinded. And of the remaining 12 final layoff notices, a few of them were already informed they would not have a job next school year.
With regards to our movement, we wanted to take a moment to post a final thank you to EDMS staff and our community, for joining in unity over the course of four months.
Special thanks to Theresa Harrington, Radar, Senator Mark DeSaulnier, Lia Muñoz, and Lynne Shields.
