UFT Executive Board February 12--42 Minutes and I Miss Five

Calls for removal of Mills and asks union to stand with her members and chapter leader of adult ed. Asks for experienced superintendent and administrators.

Howard Schoor—Says they will have a consultation on March 12th. Says they will respond.

Carlos Oliveri—Says teachers won a grant for a renovated gym. Says it shows activism of teachers and helps morale.

Minutes—approved

Questions

Mike SchirtzerMORE—Wadleigh Secondary School, supported by community, CEC, against closing. CEC wrote FariƱa. What are we doing to support school?

Dwayne Clark—Proposal is to eliminate Middle School for low register. UFT trying to fight back and not have it closed. Was meeting. Spoke of strategies. Will go to PEP. Elected officials involved. Goal is to get staff as well as parents, CEC active and aggressive, don’t like targeting. Didn’t like middle schools having only ones and twos, stacked deck. Tried adding 3 and 4s recently.
