Dayton Public Schools Faces Staffing Instability, Reconfiguration
The Dayton Public School district is in the middle of a few major transitions: the district is facing failing grades from the state, and the possibility of a takeover if the district doesn’t improve test scores over three years. The district’s latest test scores were among the worst in the state, although there’s also a debate raging about whether 2014-2015 tests should even be considered. DPS is also rearranging a number of school buildings to create new junior high schools, a process it’s calling “reconfiguration.”
And in February the superintendent and treasurer found out their contracts may not be renewed by the school board.
