BREAKING NEWS: Central Falls Teachers Say It’s a Deal
Monday, May 17, 2010
The teachers voted today after Education Commissioner Deborah Gist announced yesterday first to GoLocalProv that a tentative deal had been reached. As part of the arrangement, the school day will be extended and teachers will offer more after-school tutoring.
Central Falls High has been named one of the lowest performing schools in Rhode Island by Gist. In addition to persistently low test scores, half of all students fail their classes and slightly less than half graduation.
The board of trustees for the school had previously voted to fire all of the teachers in February, a dramatic move that drew national attention to Central Falls.
