OC Justice grades Board of Ed efforts 'incomplete'


More than 35 Orange County Justice United members gave the Board of Education a progress report card grade of “incomplete” on meeting the commitments it made last spring to increase teacher diversity and to hire more bi-lingual staff within Orange County Schools.

Justice United leaders called on Board Chair Brenda Stephens and Superintendent Todd Wirt to attend their public assembly on May 9 to report how they would meet these goals over the next hiring season this summer, and to convene a working meeting with JU leaders prior to May 9 so that they could shape teacher hiring strategies together.

Justice United's invites you to save the date for their next Countywide Leaders Meeting (Thursday, April 11, 7 pm, Hillsborough) where they will plan our assembly in May.
