I don't know if it's true that RCTC is being targeted. In fact, I don't know anything about the Regional Career Technical Center except what I read on the Ypsilanti schools web site. RCTC has auto, building trades, and food programs, and is available to high school students from Ypsilanti, Lincoln, and Willow Run.4.5 teachers, but 3 of those are coming from RCTC, where 3 programs (one full) are being shut down.
Does this mean that class sizes will get even larger?
Ypsilanti now has quite a few high school options, so it's understandable that they would have an "Exploring High School Options" event on 1/24/12 at 6:30 p.m. at Ypsilanti High School.
Anyway, the layoffs are not a done deal until the board votes on this. The Ypsilanti school board meets Monday 1/23/12 at 7 p.m. at Ypsilanti High School.
