Got to school this AM for a 6:45 AM faculty meeting to find my principal in tears. I've seen her get choked up a few times, but never quite like this. My first thought was that the principal had decided to transfer her 4 days before school started.
But no - she was just MAD. She'd found out Friday afternoon, that we are getting 75 (or more) kids transferring from the unacceptable school. Now we need more faculty (3 of which are coming from the unacceptable school), teachers have to change rooms, an additional 6th grade team has to be added. Did I mention that school starts in 4 days?
So far, none of the 100+ special education students at the "other" school have elected to transfer. It seems like most of the kids we are getting - based on stanines - would be the ones that will help our scores.
So that's where we're at.
