Dear Parents,
I am writing this letter to follow up on the D rating our school has received. I know many of you are upset and confused but I want you to be confident that my staff and I are working diligently to design a plan to help improve our school. I want to assure you that we are dedicated to our students and will be 100% invested in your child.
Our rating is based on the school’s overall performance score across multiple measures that include both student proficiency, student growth, and student success indicators as outlined in Policy 2320. It also takes into consideration Policy 4110 about student attendance and Policy 4373 on Safe and Supportive Schools. I can provide a copy of any the above policies upon request.
I will be happy to meet with anyone who has a concern and go over the details and results of our evaluation to answer any questions or concerns. There will also be several meetings over the next few months where we will be meeting to review our improvement plan.
I hope you take time to attend or send me any input or concerns you may have to my email lmhenline@k12.wv.us.
Sincerely,

Lisa Henline
