Community Meeting Tonight
There will be a community meeting tonight in the elementary school cafeteria at 6:00PM. The meeting is part of a series of meetings that will determine alternate "indicators of success" for the school district. Presently, the school district is "judged" largely on how well the students do on the State mandated tests (the PSSA's). Although this is one indicator, I think we all feel that there are other indicators that more accurately reflect how well the school district is educating our youth. Our goal for the meeting will be to develop a list of other indicators of success. I will then present to the Board in May a report of my meetings with teachers, students, and the community and what other indicators of success the school district will use alongside the PSSA test.
