“Our teachers’ No. 1 priority is the kids. They want to be in the classroom,” said Jason Romero, assistant superintendent of human resources.

“To cancel training or to send teachers back to the classroom because we don’t have enough substitutes is really not in the best interest of anybody,” Romero said. “We’re making sure our teachers get the highest quality training and that the highest quality of substitute is taking over the class.”

Gina Vargas, Del Mar California Teachers Association co-president, said at the Oct. 22 board meeting that the organization appreciates that the district is being proactive by taking steps “to continue the amazing professional development while still maintaining the integrity of our classrooms.”
