If he is doing a good job, he is worth it. If he is not, he is overpaid. That is the only way to look at it.

Look at the test scores. Look at the drop out rate Look at the teacher turnover.
Fail--fail-fail.

I know of several school districts give monthly allowances. The reason is that the state's housing authority director's salary is set by how much the superintendent's salary. So school districts give the allowance to under rate the salary. Or something like that.

Test scores make gains every year. You have to look at the kind of homes the students in Blytheville come from. The kids do pretty good considering. I don't think the school is failing the kids. Sure you have better scores in some schools but look at the student body. Id say something isn't right if you have kids failing that come from good homes where parents are involved and show interest in their kids. A lot of Blytheville's kids, not all, but a lot come with a lot of baggage. Some of these kids are young and have to take on all kinds of roles to survive and take care of smaller ones as well.

The school has put every tool it can at the finger tips of the teachers and students. When parents start doing their part the kids will. Hey if the parents don't care and there are no consequences well kids are kids. If no one says do you have homework, did you study for the test, have you read and on and on... most kids aren't going to do it on their own. They had rather play or talk on phone whatever.

More excuses from the Atwill camp, avoiding his poor qualifications, skill set and management ability. He has surrounded himself with non-qualified, non-certified personnel and he is paying the price. As are the students.
well

Who are the non qualified and for sure the non-certified? Are these non-certified working in positions that require them to be certified. Bring the proof out and do the right thing instead of just posting on here.

Look on your own website if you are that curious, but I'm sure you already know the answer to that one but for the curious one for sure is Sally Cooke. At least that is what it says on the Blytheville School website and for a very critical position for a school with the troubles you have there.

My son's teacher stayed in contact with me weekly, she did that with most of her students. She would text parents and let them know about tests, and even would call when the kids did good. Usually you only hear from the teacher when your kids are bad, but not the one, she stayed in good contact all the time. I am glad she did, my son did good in her class.

They are lucky to have her on staff. Thank you for giving her credit. Too bad you cannot put her name on Topix.

I don't know how teachers are teaching to the test when they never see them. Teachers never see the tests and they change every year. The state gives teachers something called student learning expectations and this is what the state of Ar.says will be taught in the classroom. So well and yep you have no idea what you are talking about.
