CSA Hits CSD 27 On Supervisory Vacancies
By Howard Schwach
The Council of Supervisors and Administrators (CSA), the union that represents school principals and assistant principals in the public school system, has taken the leaders to Community School Board 27 to task for the high number of supervisory vacancies that have gone unfilled for more than 60 days.
"Our contract with the city mandates that all supervisory vacancies be filled within six months," Dr. Bruce Hirschhorn, writing in the union newsletter, says. "Community School District 27 (which encompasses both Rockaway and Broad Channel as well as some mainland areas), has the second worst record in the city in this regard, with 35 vacancies that have been in existence for more than six months."
Hirschhorn added that many of those positions had been open for more than a year.
Officials at Community School Board 27 declined comment, referring The Wave to the new Department of Education. Calls to that agency went unreturned.
