The below goals are directly from the WCCUSD web site.
If this district cares about the kids as you believe it does can you tell me
at what Board Meeting were the below goals reviewed after the 2004- 2005
school year to reflect upon whether the goals were achieved and if not how
far off the goals were and what was to be done to help all those students
who did not achieve the goals.
I find it interesting that after 13 years on the board for Mr Ramsey and Ms
Fenton and over six years on the board for yourself that in this mornings
paper uniforms for the students were an answer for low achievement and
Uniforms will do nothing to improve third grade reading levels unless there
is improved teaching methods adn direct consequences for those educators
that fail the students. If after thirteen years of leadership the best this
board can come up with to succeed with the below goals is uniforms I see
little hope for the students.
When you answer this post please have ready the information needed as to the
percentages met of each one of the below goals. The goals were set while Dr.
Johnston was Superintendent and while Mr. Ramsey, Ms Fenton and yourself
were on the Board. Therefore, I would think you would want to have an
evaluation done to see how your promises were met to the students of this
district. If promises were not met then I would think you would want to know
why so you as a leader in this district could make the proper corrections to
get the results promised, so the students could become participatory
citizens, as the district mission statement asserts this district wants the
students to become.
