Mt. Edgecumbe emailed this week. They sent an announcement for the first-ever state-wide teleconference. It was Thursday night. All the parents called in and then the superintendent, the housing principal and I think, one of the nurses plus the lady who is over home/school relations. It was strange to sit and listen to parents call in and tell their own name and the name of their child and then where they were from. People called in from all over the state. Some parents we recognized. They are teachers in other districts whom we have met before. It helped me in knowing that they are all parents, too, who are wanting to know if their child is okay --- not just academically, but socially, too. We talk to our Girl about 2-3 times a week. Sometimes we use SKYPE. It is a life-saver. It really helps to be able to see her face!
The superintendent gave some numbers. Here is that info:
Returning Students 220
New Students 192
Mt. Edgecumbe DID make AYP last year.
We felt that the teleconference was well worth the time. It was very informative. The next one is scheduled for November.
