PPSD teacher match event delayed

A follow up and update to last week's post that mentioned the teacher-school job match event scheduled for this week. It's been postponed, possibly to June 6-8. I wish I could point you to info on PPSD's web site or anywhere else to confirm this, but info about this this change hasn't yet been posted or published. I believe that the new dates have gone out to teachers and principals who will participate in the event, which is how I found out.

Update! The ProJo ran a news item about the match event delay on its news blog today here. From the article:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Providence School Department and the Providence Teachers Union have agreed to postpone a job fair for displaced teachers until the week of June 6.
Here are the new dates:
Monday, June 6, for high schools.
Tuesday, June 7, for elementary schools.
Wednesday, June 8, for middle schools.

The so-called "match events" will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. each day at a location to be announced.

The district said it is delaying the job events in order to make more openings available for teachers who have lost their jobs due to school closings. Four schools -- three elementary schools and a middle school -- will close this summer because the city is facing a $110-million budget deficit.
