Am I the only parent having problems with their child accessing chat rooms during school hours because she knows she's not allowed to be in them at home.... they shouldn't have access to chat rooms from aNY Ipad device given from the school.... her teacher just called and said that she was in a chat room while in class and got her iPad taken away... she also stated other students have done the same thing.... what can we do to keep our children safe from these rooms?
Two kids attended this school within last five years. Oldest son, honors student, was bullied within first week of attending and defended himself against a perennial ISS student. When I talked to Asst. Principal he could not answer anything about what happened and just would say " We have a zero tolerance policy" and then hung up on me. Wow can I get his job? Daughter (also honor roll) currently in 7th grade indicates teachers do not give any feedback and are always late on grading assignments and tests. She is active in their student government and after school clubs but we are looking into transferring her to West Millbrook or Leesville Road. If you have alternatives I would suggest taking a hard look at them if you care about your child's education.
The new administration at Carroll is deeply invested in providing meaning education for ALL students. We have had one student go through Carroll already and had a fantastic experience. Great teachers and a safe learning environment. We now have a 6th grader and couldn't be more excited about the changes we see taking place. Our student is ACTIVELY engaged in learning and being challenged on a daily basis. We are so thankful to be a part of the Carroll Community. Its just a matter of time before this school is recognized as a model for successful 21st century education.
