My child loved every teacher she had at Decker, and the one she hoped to get for 4th grade has now left.

The district just showed students that when someone doesn't do a good job leading at one school; you move them to another school get to keep failing. It s the student learning that suffers from staff turnover.

Obviously children aren't the first concern of this principal, otherwise she would have seen the great jobs those teachers were doing in the classrooms.

Develops empathy: Disagree

If the District felt empathy, it wouldn't allow bad principals to drive off more than 75% of the school teachers at one school without investigating.

What the heck happened to my child's school? Over 18 teachers left after this school year ended. Some parents said it was because of the principal. How come the district doesn't take notice when so many teachers walk away from a single school? There is obviously a reason and that has to be the person in charge of the school. My wife found out this principal did the same thing when she was in charge of Vegas Verdes Elementary. District officials it shouldn't be hard to get rid of 1 bad principal so good schools like Decker do not lose more than half of their dedicated teachers.

Decker is a great school. You can go at the office ask to see the principal, ask questions about anything you concern about and you get answers.Ms Johnson is there for us and our kids. My son's teacher Ms. Taggart is the best, she's doing great job.

I love that this school is highly focused on parent involvement and holding the students accountable for their own work. There are of course areas to improve upon. I have volunteered on several occasions and have noticed that the children with little or no parental support are the ones that are struggling. I love all of the teachers that my daughter has had they are all seem to truly love teaching.
