The district contains low, moderate and high income families which allows the diversity in the school district. Parents come together with teachers and administrators to work together so all children are equal learners.
Finding the money to hire more interventionist for math and reading. Children in my district are behind and need additional services. We need to continue to challenge the status quo and work harder.
- Yes, and I voted to support the policy that requires it. (skip to question 9)
PARCC or any other high stakes test should not be the determining factor if a child graduates or is promoted. There is enough testing in my district for teachers and administrators to see if a child is learning. Graduation and promotion should be left to the teachers who know the child best.
State Law requires all school committee members do 6 hours of professional development a year. That law needs some teeth. School Districts could save more money if we could use mini vans instead of buses in some instances. That money must go back in the classroom. A statewide teachers contract would be welcome in my eyes.
