Sent via email... I work at a charter school, the school’s board decided that they would not move forward with the school being renewed for the next school year because of low test scores. Parents are receiving false hope that there is a chance to save the school but their decision is final. The principal Has done nothing but give us more work and more mandatory meetings. On top of this, the school lost one teacher in September and now there are combo classes after six crucial weeks of consistent procedures and routines. The principal has no interest in helping the teachers, I’m not sure what her motive is but it’s definitely not to support the school. I’m scared that my students are going to leave because it is the last academic school year, but I’m more hurt by the fact that the principal, my leader is watching everything go to shit while giving teachers more Work to do.
One of our seniors was vaping drugs on the dance floor at Prom and had a bad trip. He called his Dad who showed up ready to take on anyone and everyone. Prom ended early. Too bad for the other kids who did nothing wrong. Student was "suspended" for the remainder of the year (about 3 weeks) and had grades adjusted based on his last work submitted. Didn't take exams. Got to walk and get his diploma at Commencement. Awesome.
