Fay Elementary

Teachers at Mary Lanyon Fay Elementary are used to receiving pink slips. This year 27 of Fay’s 29 teachers have been laid off. Last year 26 of the school’s teachers were pink slipped – 23 laid off and 20 were rehired in the end. Fay’s performance on state tests improved from 2005 to 2007, plateaued in 2008 and climbed again in 2010 but dropped last year. KPBS Reporter Kyla Calvert said, as she covers the education beat, she often hears that continuity is key to improving achievement.
