...YOUR precious Petroni and Rigano do not believe the same as<quoted text>
Do you really expect every child to take the more advanced classes? Do you really think every student in Springboro should be in the same type of class and learns at exactly the same pace? Do you really think that every student should go to college? As stated very clearly at the board meeting last Thursday, your precious Petroni and Regano do not believe the same as you! You should also apply some critical thinking before you so quickly repeat a statement that makes no sense.!
you? Oh My!
Can you please apply some critical thinking AFTER reading the following beliefs, and please "educate" school district voters
just "which one of these statements of our beliefs makes no sense?"
WE BELIEVE, When we combine common sense spending with the strong performance of our schools, we provide opportunities for everyone--Our Students, Our Teachers, Our Families and Our Community.
As the status quo placed awards on the school walls, many assumed that all was well inside those walls.
But the awards only measure the PAST, and the STANDARDS are changing. Our schools perform well by the MINIMUM state standards, but "PROFICIENT"...no matter how you slice it, is FAILING.
For example, the PROFICIENT standard for the 8th grade math Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) ranges from 35%- 59%.
PROFICIENT IS NOT ENOUGH! The status quo has not been enough.
The time is now to bring forward new ways of evaluating OUR children that no longer rely upon grading on a curve to obtain the desired results. Tougher, realistic standards upset the status quo, but INFLATED STANDARDS rob our children of True Achievement and Potential.
WE BELIEVE, as our School Super Mr. Petrey believes:
Where the board's at right now is wanting the highest academic achievement and fiscal responsibility, Petrey said, "That's what I stand for."
And That Means that WE BELIEVE in the highest level of support for the Absolutely Amazing Progress made by our current board and school district leaders in the past two years.
