Report Card

The Oklahoma State Board of Education approved stringent criteria for schools to go below 165 days a year, a measure that will make it significantly harder for districts to keep four-day school weeks.

Can we agree that a school report card based almost exclusively on how students perform on a once-a-year test is wholly imprecise and delusive?

If we could find common understanding, maybe we could begin to move past our current school accountability system which, more than anything else, reflects the average size of the homes around a particular school and, instead, move towards a more pragmatic system which acknowledges the challenging yet beautiful diversity of our children and celebrates the incredible work of our educators in cultivating this uniqueness.

Most of the schools in the Sand Springs district remained the same in the second year of the modified Oklahoma School Report Cards.
