Bad News

At our staff meeting yesterday we were told that our school has been identified as a first year program improvement school.  What that means is that we are put in the first of three years to get our act together as a school, because of our low test scores.

Actually, low test scores isn’t right.  We haven’t improved quickly enough.  But the way I see it, we aren’t performing at a high enough level.  It’s the students’ fault, and it’s the fault of the teachers.  And it hurt to know that I am part of the problem.

Look at all the other schools in our district, and ours is one of only a few to be placed in program improvement by the state.  Ouch.
