News, schools, and views from a uniquely Lowell perspective

Superintendent writes in local paper

There’s been much media attention lately about the hiring practices of the Lowell schools. Today’s Sun actually features an article, “Milestones Achieved,” by Superintendent Karla Brooks Baehr where she discusses the progress the district has made in recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers as well as “career ladder,” educational, and mentoring programs. Here’s the conclusion of her article: “Achieving these milestones has taken a lot of hard work and imagination on the part of many people. We know we have more work to do. If you have questions or suggestions about any of the eight steps we’ve taken so far, please don’t hesitate to contact me at kbaehr@lowell.k12.ma.us or 978-937-7646.” To read the entire article by Dr. Baehr, check out today’s Focus section.
