Respect the law pertaining to the Chancellor Selection process
The Washington Teachers' Union is seeking the mayor’s commitment to comply with the law governing Chancellor selection, PERAA, Title I, Section 105, Subsection (b). This subsection of the PERAA reads: (b) Prior to the selection of a nominee for Chancellor, the Mayor shall: (A) Establish a review panel of teachers, including representatives of the Washington Teachers Union, parents, and students ("panel") to aid the Mayor in his or her selection of Chancellor; (B) Provide the resumes and other pertinent information pertaining to the individuals under consideration, if any, to the panel; and (C) Convene a meeting of the panel to hear the opinions and recommendations of the panel. (2) The Mayor shall consider the opinions and recommendations of the panel in making his or her nomination and shall give great weight to any recommendation of the Washington Teachers Union. We demand that representatives of the Washington Teachers' Union, parent members, and student representatives be selected by their respective organizations.
