TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The troubled Tucson school district will spend $90,000 for an outside analysis to gauge the effectiveness of around 60 employees on desegregation.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://goo.gl/4jIk8Q) that the evaluation of learning-supports coordinators seeks to answer whether there is a more productive use for the $3.7 million in desegregation funds.

The analysis is being conducted for the benefit of the desegregation plaintiffs and Special Master Willis Hawley, a desegregation expert appointed by the federal court to oversee the district’s efforts.

Tucson Unified School District Superintendent H.T. Sanchez says he is aware of the work being done by the employees and believes it’s valuable.

The district faced national criticism and was the subject of a PBS documentary after it recently ended its Mexican American Studies program.
