    Same boat as...

    some of you. Our sped. students didn't make AYP in reading again, so now our school is having to put 20% of what little Title I funds we have, into our "prof. development" fund. I'm still not sure how using Title I funds (which is NOT supposed to ever be mixed with sped.) It is so ridiculous - of the 11 kids in third grade that didn't "pass", 9 of them increased their scores 40 points or more in fourth grade! If the folks on the Hill would go to a growth model, they would get more valuable feedback on our education system, our communities would see that the kids and teachers are working their tails off, and we, as educators, could maybe hold our heads a little higher. Ok, maybe this should have gone under VENT - sorry!

    However, Linda2671, I hope you and your colleagues are celebrating! Congratulations and I'm glad to hear that your success is being recognized and rewarded! Keep up the great work!
