DISD Says Almost 300 Teachers Received Termination Notices Today
DISD says nearly 300 teachers received termination notices today after a school board vote last night.
Seven of the nine board members voted in favor of terminating the teachers and two DISD principals. Trustees Carla Ranger and Bernadette Nutall cast the dissenting votes.
The principals are being fired under a controversial plan by Superintendent Mike Miles that requires them to meet new benchmarks.
The discussion last night was heated as critics complained that Miles didn't arrive until July of last year and hasn't given principals enough time to meet new performance standards.
The fired principals and teachers have 15 days to file a protest and request a hearing.
