Posted October 10, 2011

I hate giving it a 2 because the teachers and most of the staff are terrific at what they do and really care about the kids they teach. They also have lots of choices/availability for parents to be involved within the school and a lot of parents are involved in one way or another. The downside: The principal and the behavioral program. The principal does not make himself available to parents, he seems to push you off if he knows you are upset about something (he told me he didn't check his school voice-mail when I asked why he hadn't returned my calls. Didn't check it? You are the principal!) And he doesn't seem to take things seriously unless you get extremely upset (I would rather let him know what my issue is and stay calm, then start raising my voice/yelling to get my point across). The behavioral progam does not encourage kids to do better, they get prizes and if they are good long enough they get to play the Wii (yes video games at school). I understand you want to reward good behavior, but there needs to be a plan to help them transition off the plan. When these kids go to high school no one's going to give them a prize! There are exceptions, but it still needs improvement.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Vermont used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing and grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The NECAP reading, math, and writing tests are given in the fall and test students on content taught in the previous year. The science portion of the NECAP is administered in the Spring each year and has its results released the following Fall. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Vermont. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
