To be clear, @ stevensonhs your assessment doesn’t work and hasn’t for years. #atRating@SolutionTreeAR This assessment (known at my school as EBR) has degraded learning skills and undermined work ethic while increasing student stress. And this one
the top admin refuses to admit it. They continue to defend this harmful policy. Therefore, I felt compelled to resign. After years of trying to work with the admin I was frustrated instead of hearing WHY I was frustrated,

Will the D125 school board listen and charge the superintendent to fix this? If you don’t believe me and don’t care that I end my career as a leader in my field, loved by students, at least listen to students, parents, and teachers.
But even after all this, I’m still afraid that the admin will try to slander me and try to get retribution instead of just listening and changing for the better. Big $$ is powerful. And the government is intoxicating. They won’t want to give up either.
