WHO'S ZOOMING WHO?
I'm interested in the continuous improvement of all of the schools in District 2 that are zoned for Washington and Douglass High Schools. This means we use data as a flashlight to see what we can do differently; this means we don't use data as a hammer to beat people up.
There are 15 schools in District 2 (including North Metro GNETS); however, 23 schools make up the Washington and Douglass clusters.
There are 7 schools in the Washington and Douglass clusters that have received grades of F on the state school report cards every year since 2012. No District 2 schools have a current grade of A or B.
When reviewing the data found in the state school report cards, please remember there are hard-working people at each of the schools and the district must have policies in place that remove roadblocks and barriers to improvement.
What's the story behind the numbers?
What are the numbers telling us?
What must we do?
And how are the children?
