Carthage, TX

Do You Attend Carthage School Board Meetings? Please come...

Here is a link to the Agenda. It has become common place to place all of our trust in our elected officials and the paid superintendent but over the last decade in Texas this has led to a mediocre, at best education system. If you did not know already, there is a state effort to give parents and taxpayers to rightful position at the education table. Many citizens are stepping up with passion and concern for the next generation and to demand quality, integrity and transparency in the care of our children and our tax dollars. It is never too late to get involved and now there is an initial effort by some grandparents in the Carthage area and in your surrounding sister areas to help Carthage parents engage and have a say. If his interests you message me and continue to watch for information items on this state and local matter. Here is the Agenda for the next ISD meeting - the effort to reach the community usually starts slow and grows as interest grows - I have tons of examples of parents who have said we are not going to take it anymore. It is also0 a great way to help teachers stay informed and be treated as the valuable asset they are. http://carthageisd .schoolfusion.us/m odules/groups/home pagefiles/cms/1312 080/File/Administr ation/Board%20Agen da/October_%2020,_ %202009%20_Regular _Session.pdf?sessi onid=245bc54ca668e dfa9544e49bb178ce9 8 Thank you  (Oct 20, 2013 | post #1)

Here is one example of a time line of implementation in Florida. Each school can get access to all subjects and implement them in phases http://www.fldoe.o rg/BII/pdf/CCSS-Im plementationTimeli ne.pdf  (Mar 6, 2013 | post #39)

Because some schools are new to Common Core it is being implented in phases - I promise you eventually all subjects will be covered in Common Core.  (Mar 6, 2013 | post #38)

Actually Common Core covers more than that. My daughter is a teacher in Oklahoma and uses it daily - I know some of what is in it and I also visited a store there for teachers that had mainly Common Core supplemental material and it coverd all subjects.The government could in reality pay for the rights to CSCOPE and implement it with CSCOPE if it wanted to.  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #35)

Her agenda is only to share what she learned at the hearings & what current legislation is being considered to hold this organization accountable to state education guidelines. She will most likely give updates on the investigation over the questionable finanes of the organization. Michelle also can correct misconceptions and give information on myths and rumors and pros and cons of the curriculum. She would also like to encourage parents to be more active in knowing what their kids are being taught and what curriculum is being used in your school district. It would be wise for all taxpayers to be aware of where their money is going. Anyone with questions and who wants to know the truth should boldly attend the meeting and ask her directly.  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #32)

I hope you can come and learn the latest from Michelle Smith on the matter at the Public Forum on March 7th in Henderson. She attended the hearings and can share what is myth and what is truth and what schools can and are doing. she also will update on the investigations in the potential unethical business practices of the CSCOPE organizers.  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #31)

There will be an CSCOPE Open Forum march 7th at 7 pm at the Henderson Federal Bank with guest speaker Michelle Smith with Concerned Women For America. She attended all of the State hearings on this issue and has the latest information for teachers, parents and tax payers. Of course CSCOPE is under investigation and there are rumors that Common Core is considering purchasing CSCOPE - this would be terrible for our state and our children.  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #27)
