Where's WCDBPA? Kind of silent. Takes the wind out of their sail.

I think it's safe to say they're "doing better."

I am just wondering if this PR is what we got for our $150K .... I don't doubt the test results published but I do suspect that there is possibly more to the story.

@Gunn student - It is pleasantly surprising to see a student starting this thread during Spring Break.
@Barron Park Parent - I do not know if 150k PR was hired. In any case, check this: Web Link

I see that the job description lists degree fields including "marketing" and one of the job's core objectives is "promote a community climate of support for the district."

So we are paying for the wool and paying for it to be pulled over our own eyes.

This is a new low for public school governance.

@Don Draper - Thank you for checking the link I listed. Sometimes, details are the eye opener. You mentioned a sample from this link.
Here - just another reinforcement, added to many many, many prior. Systemic issues, the excellent editorial mentioned.
Transparency? Accountability?
Sadly, seems that the gift - info of the OCR investigation, given to the community by the family coming forward to the weekly, left no real impact. Seems that an objective investigation/audit is not about to happen, systemic issues not really identified, addressed.
