Five-percent of District 186 teachers do not have the proper certification for the classes they are currently teaching.
That’s the finding of a compliance audit conducted by the Regional Office of Education.
The audit was conducted earlier than usual this year after a Lanphier High teacher was found not to have the proper credentials… after she was arrested for having sex with a student.
The audit found elementary school teachers in high school classrooms…and vice versa… and some regular ed teachers in charge of special ed classes.
The violations leave District 186 on a “pending further review” status, which could lead to sanctions if the problems aren’t corrected.
