by a teacher
Saturday, July 8, 2017

Open Quote So I have wanted to teach in DVUSD for several years. My certificate is in fine standing yet HR will refuse to even allow me to interview. They say my application does not meet the district standards. This is their response too the current teacher crisis. They will not specify why my application does not meet standards. I assume it was because I did not like my proctor when I student taught in the district so I am sure back in 2004 I was blacklisted. What a shame in the current climate when I have worked hard and have supervisor recommendations. I am really sorry for parents and students who will have overcrowded classrooms. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
