Forty four WCCUSD schools in violation of Ed Code


Forty four WCCUSD schools are in violation of Ed Code for failing to provide the number of credentialed teachers employed at their respective sites in the 2010-2011 school year.
The 7 Principals who complied are:
Coronado: 19 credentialed teachers, 1 non-credentialed teacher.
Hannah Ranch: 21 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers.
Madera: 21 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers
Mira Vista: 21 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers
Tara Hills: 28 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers
Middle College High: 11 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers
Richmond High: 75 credentialed teachers, 0 non-credentialed teachers.
Portola: Reported 20 credentialed teachers, but chose to not report the number of non-credentialed teachers. This is the only school that provided 1/2 of the information.  Note to the Portola Principal: to obtain the number of non-credentialed teachers, subtract the number of credentialed teachers from the total number of teachers.
Where were the 100 plus non-credentialed teachers employed? We have 1 accounted for. If I am paying for their salaries via a Parcel Tax, don't I have a right to know what I am getting for my money? According to the Ed Code, I do.

  1. A principal from another district shares his thoughts on this item with me


    "As principal of a school, I should know exactly who is teaching with a credential or not. There is no question. Also, the district's HR department should definitely know because they are required to report to the state every year. If HR doesn't know, then there is a serious problem.

    Have you asked the principal of the school site? This really shouldn't be an issue at all- it's like asking how many classrooms are on campus- people should know. Although they may not have the SARC available for 2011-2012 and this upcoming school year, you should ask about the more current years also...they should be able to tell you in 3 seconds (unless they are still hiring teachers for this year)."


    My reply to him was that I received no reply from the site principal or the HR Director or the Superintendent or the School Board.
