They can not handle challenges. They don't read or implement IEP's or behavioral plans until they have a large problem and the behavior is well established in the child

They can't handle their students they throw the blame on the family. They can't teach these morals if they don't have them

The principal is nice but he needs to take command of his school, over his staff. There are bullies in this school and they are STAFF!!

The new principal is trying but he can only do so much when working in a school district that just doesn't have the funds, or parent involvement it should. It's a shame... glad to have left the district!

Woodlawn has fallen well below what it used to be. While we still have some great teachers, many more do barely enough to scrape by. Bullying has become a huge issue, not only by the students, but by staff as well. Its definately not the beautiful field of flowers described by the other posts.... how much did they get paid to say that stuff?
