Delaware Professional Appraisal System 101: Part 6 of 6

Creative Delaware

Component 5:  Student Achievement

Yeah, I do not have much to say about this component for a few reasons.  One, it hasn’t counted yet….  Yup, we give our students these tests and they do not count for the students or the teachers…..  There are so many issues that the scores do not count for the individuals, just the school…..

Now, a positive.  There is an art test for me to give to my students.  This is the highlight of this whole evaluation system.  When this component counts, I will be evaluated with art, not math and ela like many other states in the country. These art test are well written, developmentally appropriate and make sense to the teacher unlike the Smarter Balance tests.

There is a training in Dover on October 1st, 2015 to explain this component and any new changes in the system since it changes every year.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
