T.C. focusing on transformation reform option


Alexandria Superintendent Morton Sherman informed the citys School Board last Thursday that he and his staff are focusing on the transformation option to move T.C. Williams High School out of the persistently low-achieving category of Virginia schools.

Sherman and other administrators traveled to Richmond on April 7 to meet with state education officials about details relating to T.C. He reported that funding becomes available for the reforms sometime in June but the dollar amount is not yet clear.

The deadline for a plan to reform T.C. of its persistently low-achieving designation is April 26 and the official application to the state is due in May. The Board is holding a work session at T.C. tonight to discuss details of plans for the school.
