The LAUSD Board will take a deep dive look at promoting teacher quality at the Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday. The presentation by Deputy Superintendent Vivian Ekchian and General Counsel David Holmquist will explore how teachers are hired, how their performance is evaluated and the process for layoffs, dismissal or transferring them to other schools. The Board will also hear about the cost of going through the process of dismissing an LAUSD teacher. The Board will also hear recommendations from a Blue Ribbon Panel on School Safety with City Attorney Mike Feuer. The entire agenda can be found here.
