TUSD isn't worth defending?? Really? We're the 3rd largest employer in Tucson and we educate the majority of our city's students. TUSD is essential to our community's economic growth. Thank you to the 200+ people who participated in our strategic planning session yesterday. Starting Monday, we invite you to visit our website to watch the presentations, grapple with the questions we worked through and provide input as well. We will be collecting community feedback for two weeks. I must believe the majority of Tucson wants our district to succeed, and wants our children to learn. Working against this is simply unthinkable.
I would like to clarify the above statement about Sunnyside's SEI model. Students are most definitely in 4 hours of SEI instruction every day. Sunnyside has communicated and worked with the Arizona Department of Education to modify the 4 hours to meet the needs of our population, but by no means have we cut the model to 2 hours a day. When discussing this with Ms. Herreras, I was sharing how Sunnyside has been able to work with ADE on compliance issues, and I am encouraged by my district's ability to do so. ~Kristel Ann Foster
