"The G.R.E.A.T. Program is a school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum. With prevention as its primary objective, the program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.

"G.R.E.A.T. has developed partnerships with nationally recognized organizations and schools. These partnerships encourage positive relationships among the community, parents, schools, and law enforcement officers.

"G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. The G.R.E.A.T. Program offers a continuum of components for students and their families."

What a horrible way for a teacher to find out they have not been rehired.
April 06, 2010 at 5:18pm
It is our understanding that persons who would not be rehired were notified before this information was released by the school system.
April 07, 2010 at 5:11am
All of them knew their situation. You do not find out like this.

I spoke to one of these teachers yesterday. She did not know about this until a parent told her they read it online.
