Yes, it is true that there have many changes this school year (2010-2011), but the district would not have made these changes if they were not necessary. If you have done your research, you would know that prior to this school year, our scores were in the dump. The admin that was brought in, by committee, sees the weaknesses that are here, and have taken them out. The students are learning, they are engaged. No, there is no art, but we have never had an art program as the other schools in the district have. Yes, I do believe that is wrong to be sending kids to middle school not knowing their primary colors, but in order to keep our school out of corrective action, there are steps that had to be made by admin. I do believe both of the administrators who were brought in are very qualified for the job, both of whom have been in education for over ten years each, and held assistant principal ships in the past. They are not nice, but in this situation, I wouldn't be either. Their reputations are on the line, and they know what needs to be done in order to succeed.
