HARTFORD — City officials want the state to help them retain senior teachers for magnet, redesigned and charter schools.
The Hartford Board of Education tonight will discussed a proposed resolution requesting that the State Board of Education take corrective action to apply school and program-based seniority in Hartford.
The board meeting is scheduled for tonight a 5: 30 p.m. at the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy at 280 Huyshope Ave.
The reason outlined for this proposal is that, among other things, school-based seniority protects senior teachers from being bumped from these special schools in favor of “those not qualified,” according to the list of justifications sent out to the press.
