School takeover process heats up

The proposed takeover of some LA Unified schools in East Los Angeles and other parts of the district finds some people exhibiting behavior that would probably earn them a detention slip. A story in the EGP News notes that school district Supt. Ramon Cortines issued some last-minute rules over this week’s public advisory vote to help determine which group will run Garfield High and many other LA Unified campuses. “Some individuals have not acted as appropriate role models,” Cortines, said in an announcement to staff and community. “We are still having challenges with establishing a culture of respect and integrity across our community.”

Some of the rules, posted on the LA Unified website, include:

“No intimidating or disrespectful behavior during this process.

The spreading of misinformation will not be tolerated.”

Cortines will consider the results of the advisory vote, which are scheduled to begin tonight, before making a final selection.
