Cortines seems to believe that anything which comes from HPHS – its teachers or coordinators or administration – is not worth much. He rejects all the proposals saying that there is “little or no clear evidence that these proposals will be successfully implemented.” He wants the school to fall under PSC 3.0 so that it can be open for charter take over.
In the interim he wants us all to be busy coming up with new proposals that do a better job of guessing at his desires than these previous ones did, even though as he puts it, “HPHS does not have a track record of success.” We must be “restructured” in the 2012/12 school year with the best guessers at what will win board approval being awarded the privilege of deciding who gets to serve on the faculty.
Jon Chaikittirattana must establish a Ninth grade academy on his own for this coming July – Good luck Jon. Natividad Rozsa, Principal leader for District 6 and Rowena Lagrossa are commissioned to develop a correctional plan for the rest of us until restructuring takes place. I’m ready to be corrected. Are you? He also wants a council to be formed among the various administration teams (HPHS, Libra, and Social Justice) to share resources and develop PD plans.
This must be approved by vote of the board on Tuesday April 12. Let’s see what happens.
