Canton Public Schools meeting cleared the air for parents and citizens

There is more to the new letter grading system by the state Department of Education than we know. When progress is being made at schools within the Canton Public School District and it receives a F after a previous “Low Performing” label, it caused confusion among educators, administrators and parents, which led to false information about the district being a candidate for takeover by the state and/or charter school transition.  

I attended the special meeting for information for an enterprise piece, and found out lots of stuff about the accountability system and how it affected Canton. Here’s a good story by reporter Lucy Weber from The Madison County Herald: http://www.mcherald.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121127/NEWS/311270002/Canton-schools-call-for-help
