SCUSD Annouces Its Withdrawl From the CORE Waiver

At  a press conference today at the offices of the Sacramento City Teachers Association, Sacramento City Unified Board President Patrick Kennedy announced that SCUSD will not be applying for a renewal of the CORE waiver from No Child Left Behind; although the waiver might have seemed that it would benefit the district, the way in which it was entered into has created an atmosphere of distrust. He stated that the district is committed to working collaboratively with its partners to rebuild that trust.
 
SCTA President Nikki Milevski said that while it did bring some flexibility in supplemental education service funds, teachers could not support the waiver which had no community or teacher input and threatened local control of the district. Sacramento City teachers applaud the district's decision and are committed to  working together to implement the Common Core Standards and a method of evaluating teachers that all mutually agree on.
