You also have to mention his blunder of AGAIN tying ELA teachers' hands by having us "Google" resources rather than purchase materials that are research based. Rumor had it that we were going to finally get a text book. Come to find out the last day of post planning that we will not.
Our scores continue to slide I literacy and yet we aren't given what we need to improve them. Sine we are "googling" again, are we again limited on our paper and ink supply? Probably. I ran out of ink in February and when I asked for more, was told we had no more money to purchase it. I was told I would have to purchase it myself which would be over $170 because the inks are so expensive for these printers they are phasing out anyway.
Something needs to be done if he truly wants to see an increase in literacy scores. Achieve 3000 is nice and all but it does NOT replace a solid text that is research based and proven to work. Achieve 3000 is also not that helpful when you are limited by the number of computers you have access to or the bandwidth (actually lack of) limitations. Yet, I am still being held accountable for my student growth scores while the Superintendent gets a free pass?!?!? Frustrating indeed!!!
