Deasy: Teachers delaying LAUSD bid for $40m in federal grants

Officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District raced on Monday to meet a fast-approaching deadline to apply for up to $40 million in federal grants.
Superintendent John Deasy told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that the application would add more jobs to the district payroll and help guide students toward their ultimate goal.
“It would put hundreds of positions to our middle schools and high schools to support students so they could be on track for graduation,” he said.
But Deasy said United Teachers Los Angeles has yet to sign off on the bid because it “requires within two years to have a new, robust teacher evaluation program.”
Deasy added that he does expect both sides will strike a deal by the Friday filing deadline.
