Kudos to the PSRC School Board and Superintendent Hunt for listening to the parents, teachers, students and principals and re-storing the EOC schedule to normal.
In case you missed it, a poorly planned, last minute change to the schedule was implemented at the last board meeting in order to accommodate students interested in watching the inauguration.
The schedule change which would have moved testing up several days would have cost students and teachers valuable time to review.
I was one of the many parents who were upset by the board’s initial decision to move the first day of testing back. Via e-mail, texts and phone calls our board members and the superintendent listened to our concerns and took action.
A special thanks to chairman Robert Deese who accepted my phone call and listened to my comments and concerns. He was very understanding of the issue and assured me that the board and the central office would re-visit the schedule change.
I was very pleased to hear that by the afternoon our children had word that the schedule had been restored.
Our school board has pledged to put students first and this time they very much did. They put politics aside, listened, re-evaluated and made a decision that was right for the students.
