Parents who transfer their kids generally care more about their child's education which is why they put the effort into transferring them to a better school district. I absolutely understand the concern. My daughter's class one year had a ridiculous amount of turnover rate when it came to transfer students coming and going from her class, and I did know of some transfer kids being problems in the classroom BUT there were just as many if not more discipline problems coming from well-rooted Claremont families whose children are spoiled and act out accordingly. Claremont should welcome transfers. It brings more money to the district and it brings diversity to our children.

As a teacher in the CUSD I observed first hand the pros and cons of interdistrict transfers. There is a policy to remove students who do live up to the standards in three areas: attendance, academics and behavior. Most of the time this policy is followed, but there are many exceptions. The teachers just have input into the decisions, but the administrators make the decisions.

I have first hand knowledge of times when interdistrict transfers have hurt other studentsí learning. If the District is low, for example at grade 5, and a student has been tardy for over 60 times in a year and has had behavior problems (one of my former students), then that student will be kept on to fill the seat to get the funds from the state.

Teachers in the classroom need to be able to tell their administrators that interdistrict students are not working and the administrators need to listen to the teachers. If the administrators disagree with the teachers, then let that decision go to the Board in closed session.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
