What is the reasoning for Blaine and Kelley to keep no more than 50% of their teachers? Blaine and Kelley received teachers and students from closed schools so this is effectively killing the institution knowledge and memory of at least four schools. When PSP announced it would come to the rescue with funds for receiving schools, who at the district knew it would be at this price?

re: capa principal giving grades for phantom courses, isn't this done all the time at the elementary level when teachers are told they must give grades for music, art, dance, foreign language, etc?
