All of the elementary teachers who got RIFed last year pending passage of the referendum--instrumental music, art, and world language--have been told their building assignment for next year is TBD (to be determined). General music and PE teachers have also been told their location for next year is TBD. So your child might have a different teacher next year in these subjects, even if their current teacher has excellent performance reviews.

What a terrific show - those kids were professional in everyway and there were so many kids on stage! Bravo to BRAVO for providing an extraordinary experience for so many children in Oak Park. Plus - I hear that there was an executive from a national music publishing company there. BRAVO is becoming nationally known!
