Students in the CHCCS Alternative Learning Arrangement Program Have Yet to be Assigned Teachers
Three weeks into the school year, CHCCS Alternate Learning Arrangement (ALA) students still do not have teachers assigned to them. The ALA students were advised that they would be assigned teachers on Sept. 13. There are 244 students enrolled in the ALA program, including my own child. We were advised that my child does not need to attend school from the date we enrolled him in the ALA program. He was given homework from the first week, on Aug. 26. However, he receives no instruction because the new teachers have not been assigned yet and we were informed that his current home school teachers are not his ALA teachers. My question is: who are my child’s teachers from 8/23 to 9/10? We live in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School District. We enrolled our child in the public school to which we were assigned (Smith). Currently, however, neither the district nor his home school provides any instruction for him. The several hundred other ALA students are presumably in the same situation. -Hui Ding Ph.D. (email@example.com)
