School administrators were among those notified by Modesto City Schools that their job performance needs to improve or they face not coming back for 2013-14 school year, which starts in August.
Today is the deadline for the school district to notify its roughly 1,500 teachers and roughly 100 certificated managers if they need to improve.
Modesto City Schools Superintendent Pam Able said the district makes such notifications every December. She said those who received notifications included school administrators, who serve as principals, associate principals and assistant principals.
Citing privacy concerns, Able declined to say how many notices were sent to school administrators, the rank of the administrators and at which schools they work. She said no school administrator is being removed this school year.
"Administrative positions are considered yearlong positions," she said. "No one will be leaving midyear."
She said school administrators who do not improve could find themselves teaching in a Modesto City Schools classroom next year. They also could seek employment with another school district.
