CCISD Teachers Out Protesting Against One-Year Contracts

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Corpus Christi Independent School District teachers are demanding better contracts, and on Monday, they took their message to the decision makers of the CCISD.

"I'm passionate and very angry, because I think we can do better for our kids," said Dr. Nancy Vera, an advocate for teachers. "Worst contracts in the state of Texas for new teachers. Sends a message that we don't want quality teachers for our kids."

Vera was one of two people who stood outside of Carroll High School Monday morning with signs in hand, protesting a decision by the CCISD board last week to keep resigning new teachers to one-year contracts.

Teachers say that is unfair, and it limits their ability to appeal if they are fired. They want open ended contracts to come back.

The protest continued Monday evening at the CCISD administration building. Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell went Live from there with the details.
