Congratulations to Mount Si High School for being honored by for the second year in a row for increasing student participation in Advanced Placement classes. This is a result of the vision and perseverance of a small group of talented AP teachers and their drive for success. I ask you to think about the possibilities if we had district driven goals, priorities, and high expectations like these teachers had. We need to set high expectations for all students from kindergarten through high school, not just for the top performers. We need to ensure that this K-12 system results in keeping kids from dropping out and preparing all students to be successful in college and career training. Those are the key indicators of success for a school district. I believe that we need to put into place an action plan across the district, from K-12, to make sure this is our focus. Just think about the community engagement and celebration when we achieve that level of success. Just to be clear here: This is not to say that we don’t have teachers all over the district who are working in many different ways every day for success for students. Not at all. My point, is the same one I have been making since day one – we need district driven (top level) goals that are clear and measurable, that we can all get behind as a community of educators, teachers, and community members. With these goals, the district can prioritize decision making and funding where they are needed most.
