I posted the complete 22 page OSI report in google docs.
We've been on the case here at Ed Notes for over a year. Finally, Kathleen Elvin is gone - the worst thing she did was not the cheating - it was how she treated teachers. Does that single parent veteran she discontinued last year as a way to retaliate against the union get her job back?
At a PEP I challenged Farina directly in this issue of pulling teachers for anything while leaving charged principals in power to harass people and end their careers.
A contact connected to Dewey emailed this was about to go down.
I told him from they will get a worse principal in retaliation for their embarrassing Farina. So have your party and get ready for the next slug.
Here is a report from Farina's office.
NY Post:Today, we are releasing the Office of Special Investigations report on allegations surrounding credit recovery and grading/credit improprieties at John Dewey High School (21K540). The report is attached, and a statement attributable to Chancellor Carmen Fariña and background information is below.Statement attributable to Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña:“The results of the investigation are disturbing and show there was a failure to follow the DOE’s protocol during the 2013-2014 school year. We have begun the process to have Ms. Elvin’s employment terminated, and she will be removed from payroll shortly. Ensuring every New York City student is meeting the high-quality standards necessary to graduate is an imperative and we are retraining principals across the City to ensure these standards are upheld.”On background:*During the summer, there will be a training for superintendents and principals on credit recovery protocol to ensure this does not occur again.*This investigation concerned allegations related to credit recovery and credit/grading improprieties during the 13-14 school year. Any allegations of similar misconduct during the 14-15 school year should be reported to Special Commissioner of Investigation.*The new principal at John Dewey High School will be a Master principal as part of our Ambassador program, Connie Hamilton. She is the current principal of Kingsborough Early College School.Thanks,DevoraDevora KayePress Secretary, NYC Department of Education@dskaye
