  1. Pay close attention to this item:
    8. International Teacher Services Agreements
    Presented by: Dr. Tekshia M. Ward-Smith, Chief Human Resources Officer, Division of
    Human Resources

    Here is the link to the details:
    https://eboard.eboardsolutions.com/Meetings/ViewMeetingOrder.aspx?S=4054&MID=37867

    Details
    Due to teacher shortages in the critical needs areas of Math, Science and Special Education, the services of Intalage, Inc. and Global Teaching Agency will provide the District with additional staffing resources for filling vacant critical needs areas. All teachers selected by the District are fully certified and will be interviewed and recommended by the Principal. To reiterate, this is only an additional staffing resource to provide high quality teachers to students.

    Financial Impact
    The amount of the contracts will not exceed $3,005,000 for up to 45 teachers and will come from allotted teacher positions in the General Fund.

    Fee for Agency – $11,500.00
    Average Fee for Employee Salary – $55,000

    Contacts
    Dr. Tekshia Ward-Smith, Chief Human Resources Officer, Division of Human Resources, 678.676.0168

    QUESTION >> (which we are fairly certain No One Will Ask) — Who exactly OWNS Intalage, Inc. and what or to whom is their connection to DeKalb County Schools? Their ‘office’ listed on their filings with the Sec of State is a small ranch house near Chamblee HS that pretty much looks vacant.

    https://eboard.eboardsolutions.com/meetings/TempFolder/Meetings/Intalage_537316jvn1e0izki44pb55wwpb3pmj.pdf

    And what about “Global”? Their office is stated to be located at 7171 Jonesboro Road, Morrow, Georgia 30260 (a small Williamsburg style office building that looks to be owned by a realty group http://www.manta.com/c/mm4zcgl/7171-jonesboro-road-realty-group-llc )
    https://eboard.eboardsolutions.com/meetings/TempFolder/Meetings/Global_537317jvn1e0izki44pb55wwpb3pmj.pdf

  2. So one question on this topic is — Is the $11,500 agency fee for each of the ’employees’? That’s some serious moolah.
    Also – where can we access a full list and accounting of the employees provided by these companies? Which schools will they be assigned to? How can we double check to see if they are in fact, coming in to school and teaching students?
    (Remember BookGate? Administrators supposedly bought hundreds of copies of their own published books to ‘give out’ to students… but we have never found anyone who received a book!)

    ACTION ITEMS

    International Teacher Services Agreement with Intalage, Inc. Teaching Agency – Dr. Tekshia Ward-Smith, Chief Human Resources Officer, requested that the Board of Education approve the teaching services agreement with Intalage, Inc. teaching agency for up to fifteen (15) teachers for the remainder of the 2012

    2013 school year, in a total amount of $561,929.35.

  5. concerned citizen says:

    OMG: I smell a rat! And this time, we may actually get to the F&Fers who arranged this contract. We need to serve notice that NO MORE hanky-panky will be allowed. One thing, though, I don’t see any mention of the sorority sisters traveling to Detroit!

  6. Word Wall says:

    Teachers are fleeing Dekalb, so a mysterious private company has been hired to find warm bodies. I’ll bet counties that have normal standards would never engage in this last-minute, stopgap nonsense. Once again Dekalb County wastes the taxpayers’ money to try and cover up its own chronic, and apparently permanent, dysfunction…

  8. midvaledad says:

    For all their talk, the BOE approved the same class size waiver as last year. They did nothing to lower class sizes.

    I would like to point out to Superintendent Thurmond that adding one teacher for every thousand students is the same as 1/1,000.

    Start with two pizzas. Cut one into 99 slices to represent the 2013-14 school year. Cut the other into 100 slices to represent the 2014-15 school year.

    WOW! The slices really are smaller! (sarcasm)

  9. So Midvale dad – did the board approve an additional class size waiver? As we understand it, these waivers have compounded — so we’ve had 3 waivers allowing the addition of 2 more children per class which resulted in 6 more children per class. Have we now added 2 more?!! Was it clear? Did anyone on the board ask for clarity? Did they ask why we needed the waiver? Did they ask anything about anything? [Sorry, we missed the meeting due to our regular work schedules. … we don’t work for the school district and this is a community blog.] If anyone watched or attended, please fill in what you observed in the comments below… thanks!

  10. Ms. Ward Smith: Raise teacher salaries by $11,500.00 each and you won’t need to hire an Agency to find you teaching candidates.

  11. Concerned Dekalb Mom says:

    I did not see the board meeting…but wondering if anyone caught this:

    “THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that effective for the 2014-2015 school year only, the DeKalb Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent of Schools to increase the class size maximums to exceed the levels identified in Rule 160-5-1-.08 CLASS SIZE by:
     1 to 8 students in grades K-12 in Regular Education”

    The Rule 160-5-1-.08 already sets max class sizes at 24 for K, 27 for 1-3, 34 for 4-5, 36 for 6-8, and 39 for 9-12 (I may have that last one incorrect). If the board passed this resolution, then the superintendent can raise the class sizes by up to 8 students each (32 students in kindergarten??really?? are you SERIOUS???).

    Did anyone see if they approved this or not???

  12. Word Wall says:

    Pathetic. Shocking. Scandalous. Typical.

  13. @ConcernedMom: It seems incongruent that the administration announced they would be hiring more teachers, yet asked to increase class size by up to 8 students per class (in regular classes – not magnets or gifted… another topic altogether).

    As far as needing teachers, it appears through this meeting that we are hiring hundreds of them – and contracting with two companies to get most of them from a ‘supply’ stock of foreign teachers.

    [From the AJC Get Schooled Blog] Seems like Dekalb needs to make nice with Georgia State.

    Teacher Residency Program (special education, math, or science): Net-Q
    While enrolled in an 18 month initial certification program at Georgia State, teacher residents are placed with a mentor teacher in a high-needs school and receive a $25,000 living stipend. The residencies are in special education (elementary/middle/or high school), mathematics or science (middle or high school) Successful completion ensures a job with the school district where the Teacher Residency Program is completed.

  14. DecaturMax says:

    If that is $10,500 per teacher, that is a hell of a payday for a political connection. Just like the legal department, HR now sends out huge contracts to connected 3rd parties for what should be done in house. Do these teachers also get paid off the regular teacher scale? What percentage of Global Teachers Research & Resources, Inc.business is with the contract with DeKalb County. No BOE questions & no answers. I keep watching the national rankings at our local DeKalb schools decline. Outsiders and relocations often judge us by a 1 to 10 number at http://www.greatschools.org. While Marshall Orson and the DeKalb BOE leveled Fernbank for fresh brick and mortar, Druid Hills Middle school Dropped to a 3 out 10. That is right 3 out of 10. Can it get worse academically?
    These same kids subjected to huge classes, low morale and an out flow of the best teachers will surely lower Druid Hills High’s present greatschool.org score of 5 out of 10 further.

  15. concerned citizen says:

    Excuse me, but does anyone else know Dr. Bouie and all five of her F & Fers – husband, father-in-law, brother-in-law, the two other Bouie wives, all in very high positions? Well, we can understand that poor Julia never achieved anything but two children with Edward L Bouie, Jr. Isn’t that amazing? First, there was Edward L Bouie, called “daddy, “who served as a token of the Black population of DeKalb. Then, there was Pam, then Julia, the typing teacher, and perhaps finally Gwen. Of course, Edward L Bouie, Jr., caused so much scandal in DeKalb that he should have been run out of town and nearly was by a disgruntled husband. We’re talking at least one law suit that cost the county many, many thousands of dollars to defend him! There are many people who sadly know the details of Edward L. Bouie, Jr.’s scandous love affairs. And he is still messing around and heading the election to the board’s campaign for Walker and good old Melvin, Edward’s very best bud. Sadly, there’s another Bouie in DeKalb, who is now an assistant principal. HOW MANY YEARS OF BOUIES MUST WE TAKE? That’s six of them!!!! And there may be more.There are lots of unmentioned children around. Nobody got hired with Jr. around unless they KHA. And now,we hear Pamela is behind the contracts for hiring new teachers! Although Pam has remarried, you will notice that she has not dropped the Bouie name! It’s comical in a way. Don’t you think Dr. Pamela should be removed from consideration for hiring teachers? These are all people who have brought this school system to its knees, and some of the motives for this continued nonsense and crazy resumes is due to pure and simple revenge, not to mention greed. This is NOT about students and teachers.

  16. midvaledad says:

    The class size waivers do not compound. The people telling you classes were only increased by 2 were lying to you.

    Here is the class size resolution. It is identical to last year’s. https://eboard.eboardsolutions.com/Meetings/Attachment.aspx?S=4054&AID=535558&MID=36252

    The allotments guy said the 100 extra teachers were needed to keep from bumping up to the maximums and classes “shouldn’t” be at the maximum size. The superintendent just wanted the flexibility “if needed.”

    None of the board members fought it. I am so disgusted.

  18. Thanks midvaledad. So to recap everyone – please understand that our board of education (who insist that they ‘care about the children’) approved the following increases to class size limits:

    THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that effective for the 2014 – 2015 school year only, the DeKalb Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent of Schools to increase the class size maximums to exceed the levels identified in Rule 160-5-1-08 CLASS SIZE by:

    1 to 8 students in grades K-12 in Regular Education,
    1 to 6 students in English Language Learners (ELL),
    1 to 8 students in Gifted,
    1 to 8 students in Early Intervention Program (EIP),
    1 to 8 students in Remedial Education Program (REP),
    1 to 6 students in Vocational (CTAE),
    1 to 6 students in Alternative Education Program (AEP),
    1 to 4 students in Students with Disabilities, Group I
    1 to 4 students in Students with Disabilities, Group II
    1 to 4 students in Students with Disabilities, Group III
    1 to 4 students in Students with Disabilities, Group IV
    1 to 4 students in Students with Disabilities, Group V

    Adopted this 2nd day of June, 2014.

  19. PSDad says:

    Thurmond smiles in public and speaks about the remarkable transformation that DCSS has realized under his watch, yet there has been no noticeable change in the terrible teaching conditions that our kids and teachers are forced to deal with.

    Two weeks into the 2013/2014 school year we realized that our kids were stressed and overwhelmed by the size of the classrooms and the limited interaction that they were receiving from their teachers. My 1st grader was placed in a classroom of 30 kids (22 boys), crammed in desks that were so tightly spaced that they were almost sitting shoulder to shoulder. My two girls were in classrooms with about 28 kids. The teachers were obviously overwhelmed, and the school year had barely started.

    After actively participating in our local schools for the prior eight years, we made an extremely difficult decision to move our kids to private schools that offered small classroom environments. They are thriving and happy in their new environment, but the financial burden is enormous.

    At one time I was hopeful that someone with courage would take over at DCSS and start redirecting resources back to the classroom. Now it’s clear that will never happen and the best that I can hope for is a political solution that empowers communities to take control of local schools and community leaders that will act quickly to make this happen.

  20. President Obama gave the graduation speech at this highly successful Tech High School in Wooster, Massachusetts. We could have a school like this in DeKalb. We have the resources. We just need to focus our energies on pushing those resources equitably into schools with purpose and access for all, and away from administrators and specialty boutique schools. But we will need leadership with vision and guts.

  21. This and That says:

    You have got to be kidding about increasing class size again! I teach in a self-contained Kindergarten Special Education class. We had a dangerous situation this year with the combination of all the various abilities. I am not complaining about all of the extra work (I am a marathon runner so it does not bother me) but it is a safety issue with all involved. I am not sure how they are able to increase the size of Special Education self-contained classes when the IDEA (Individuals with Disability Education Act) states specific ratios. Anyway, it will interesting to see what actually happens.

  22. teachermom says:

    This and That
    Self contained classes in this county are lawsuits waiting to happen. They are probably violating federal law. I know that when they asked for waivers from the state before Special Ed classes were included and I questioned it then. State laws do not usually supercede federal but I don’t know if the state gets a special waiver or not. In any case, these classrooms are not supported in this district unless they are housed in Coralwood. It amazes me how all of the different disabilities are thrown together, like they are just being housed rather than taught…Gwinnett has special autism classrooms which seem like such a good idea. A couple of years ago the speech therapist did not get hired to serve a school until several months in to the fall.

    From what I can see they aren’t getting training for the paras, many of whom are former kindergarten paras with no experience or training, who often do not want to be there but have no choice as this is the only job left for them. These students require close monitoring and supervision in small group settings. Safety has always been an issue and I have seen injuries in in closely supervised situations. IDEA compliance, not so much…

  23. This and That says:

    Thank you teachermom! Exactly my point. Coralwood was my first “school” here in DeKalb (early 90s). Since then I have been transferred all around the county (to open new classes). I have seen and experienced all of the changes through the years in the county. It is sad because I attended DeKalb County schools in their glory days (60s and 70s).
