Marks says picture is improving

School officials and school board members say privately that they are not shocked by the D score, given the statistics they had examined from testing in early 2013.

“The Franklin County School District began a transition toward change on July 1, 2013,” said Mark. “Data results were studied and professional development was held based on identified weaknesses and areas of need.

She said that the district “created a proactive plan of action to include new administration, an on-site principal and assistant principal, dean, reading coach, guidance department, and media specialist as additional leadership support.”

Marks said that once the strategic plan was initiated in August 2013, the new principal, Eric Bidwell, began one-on-one conferences with faculty, focusing on changes required by DOE, the teacher evaluation process, and the level of expectation for this school year 2013-2014.

“Communication is improving among all levels at the school, district office, and in the community,” said Marks.

She said data results from these state reports “have the district looking, again, at the economic situation our community is facing.
