Posted December 10, 2013

I must address the post from Sunday, December 8, 2013. No one, not even a parent, can chaperone or participate in class without a background check. It's curious that the poster could list no particular issue, save for the question of education. Does the poster think that anyone holding a degree would be willing to serve as a low-paid assistant? I suspect there is little quantifiable evidence of anything remotely deemed "scary" about anyone at Goodridge.

School and teachers are really available to my daughter and her needs. My daughter did attend a neighboring school and neither one of us liked it. Teachers seemed disinterested, fellow classmates was more rude and snobby. The students a goodridge are more freindly.

As a parent of a special needs child I have much to say on the special needs program. It has been a truly disappointing program for my autistic son. They are totally unequipped to teach my son. I would not trust these people with your special needs child. In the IEP meetings they are telling you what you want to hear. Make sure you are observing the classroom unannounced everyday!

Goodridge is an amazing school. There are ample opportunities for children to thrive in the classroom as well as in music, art and enrichment. It has been my experience that the parents, teachers and administration all work hand in hand to make available the highest levels of education and experience for the children.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.
