Red Clay now focuses on working out individual plans for each school. The agreement with the state gives the district’s planning committees more time to submit those plans. Though no plans are officially on the table yet, district administrators mentioned some ideas that are in the works.
One proposal is reconfiguring the grades for Shortlidge and Warner Elementary Schools to create a “campus” model. Shortlidge would serve kids in kindergarten through second grade, while Warner would serve grades three through five.
That, district staff say, would allow school staff to focus more narrowly on individual grades’ needs. It would also provide more classes for each grade, allowing for more targeted work with individual students’ needs.
But several parents said they were concerned splitting the schools up would disrupt relationships with teachers and could present logistical hurdles for families.
Why is it Red Clay comes up with plans that always seem putative to black children!
Mrev’s phone will be ringing big time today with good Wilmington brothers saying how much $$$ is in it for me if I help pour the Kool-aid. WTF !!!!!!! When will the men stand up like men it Wilmington ?
The district also plans to work with the University of Virginia to train principals and district administrators on things like how to coach teachers, how to make smart decisions using data, and how to place the right staff in the right place.
University of Virginia? Shit I forgot, Markell is pissed at U of D researcher and must have told Merv to hook-up with his old pal. Sole-source vendor my ass Merv! A little Google and midnight oil will shine some light on this scam 😉 Stay tune on this one 🙂
Real nice split Warner and Shortlidge! Do that to North Star and Brandywine and all hell would break loose!
