Cold Hard Proof DOE Is INTENTIONALLY Embargoing Smarter Balanced Results & Have The Results Already



They say a picture paints a thousand words. This one paints well over 200,000. That will be the words of the Delaware parents of the 133,000 Delaware public school students when they find out the Delaware Department of Education has INTENTIONALLY been holding on to the scores of the Smarter Balanced Results AND when they get the results in the mail in a month. That’s right, a month. But the districts will start to get data on Monday. I’m sorry, in what world does this make sense?  I would think with ouster of Mark Murphy they would start to wake up, but with what I’ve seen SINCE last Friday, they are getting worse…

To the 148th General Assembly, if you don’t begin to reign this Department and Governor Markell in, we the people will make BIG decisions on Election Day 2016.  My advice, call a special session, override House Bill 50, pass emergency legislation to get rid of Smarter Balanced, pass emergency legislation to dismantle the leadership of the Delaware DOE, and start impeachment proceedings against Governor Jack Markell…

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!

  1. The Delaware Department of Education is the absolute worst executive department in the state. Bar none, hands down.


  2. DCAS results were normally posted on HAC well before the mailings went out. As of this writing HAC is down for its annual summer wash-and-dry. Here is the message I got when I tried to log into HAC at

    HAC will be down from June 22 through August 23, 2015. Transportation information will be available as of August 24, 2015. Remaining options will be available August 31, 2015.

    As I recall HAC passwords are included in your Welcome Back mailing, same one that includes the bus info. If not, call the school as soon as you can get someone to answer the phone. You can also try the “Register Online” option right now on HAC and see if it works.

    It is an open question if and when Smarter Balanced scores will be posted online. I don’t even know if the HAC site is technically capable.
