Fascinating...They actually used the word "accountability" Shocking! (LOL)
That sure sounds all well, good and logical but who are "they" to enforce these new (should have been all along) goals?
I think most people in general need to be accountable and responsible more now than ever because our children's generation seems to be more aloof or less mannered.
Either way, encouragement , support and motivation are insurance for a better and healthy anything.....
Let's hope it works, and that extra funding not be absorbed by the "administration."
Regarding the following objective:
* Recruit, hire, retain and develop the best and most highly qualified candidates who are representative of the diversity of the district's student population.
Apparently, this does not apply to special education teachers. On the day before school let out for the summer, parents at DVHS learned (and not from the district or school admin) that two outstanding special education teachers would not be returning in the fall. No explanation was given to parents.
I was beginning to believe that the Special Ed situation in our district had finally improved, but seemingly, it is still okay to disregard and disrespect special ed students and their families.
Just to clarify the above post, these teachers did not choose to leave; after completing the two-year probationary period, the district or school (we don't know which) decided not to bring them back, with no explanation.
My daughter had a great newish math teacher @ LCMS and the last days announced that she would be moving to Charlotte wood because the school couldn't offer her a full time position next year.
What????? Is the "district " that cheap/poor that it cannot retain a required field of academics for middle schoolers?
I haven't inquired yet, BUT why do we have to question these stupid information that comes home to us? Why doesn't the school send out information to parents? It's our right to make changes, if necessary, for the welfare of our children.
I'm so sick of all these "bonds," "taxes," "proposals," to raise more money and I see NO improvements where there need to be.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
