The parent stated that he/she was not able to attend the PTSA meeting where this was presented but that it seemed to others to be fairly vague and no one is really sure what is coming. The parent also asked:
I see that there are similar changes happening at McClure, so wonder if this is district-wide?
Well, the district has said very, very little about Spectrum and is seemingly allowing principals to chart their own course.
(Editor's Note: It does very much look like the district believes they can DO everything in one classroom and provide ELL, Sped and AL services.)
That certainly might be the goal but seriously,
- where the PD/certification for all this specialty teaching?
- where's the IA for classes with this number of challenges?
- with what class size? Because once you get over 24, that's a big class with many kids who need particular services)
Back to the subject at hand, what are you hearing/seeing at your middle school?
