Lot’s of good discussion surrounding testing as well as a discussion on merit pay (pay for performance). This time we had current and former teachers who brought a lot to the discussion as well as some new parents who shared concerns about the current system.
We appreciate everyone who attended the discussion and as always was informative, engaging and respectful of the different viewpoints.
The next Breaking Bread Potluck will be tentatively on November 8th and please share with us your ideas about what topic you would like presented at this next meeting. Please send any suggestions you may have to email@example.com
The handout packet has a great deal of information and the most important we think is first page for PARCC and the READ ACT flyer by the Colorado Department of Education. Also, it is well worth your time to go to http://parcconline.org
