What About Accountability

First a reminder. The leadership priority list for schools this year is as follows:

 

Priority 1-A: Keep Your Adults Alive

 

Priority 1-B: Keep Your Student Healthy

 

Priority 1-C: Keep Your School Open

 

Period. Full Stop.

 

School leaders nod and then someone says, “But what about state testing?

 

Good question. Review the priority list. I’ll wait.

 

State testing isn’t on the list. So don’t worry about it.

 

Which means that if your state leaders are hell bent on testing, who cares? So what if your testing scores go backwards?

 

If you keep your adults alive, students healthy, and school open for most of the year, but your scores fall… What is the worst thing that can happen?  You get fired?

 

If you get fired for keeping your adults alive, students healthy, and school open, then wear that as a badge of honor. Because the school district next door that failed in meeting any of those priorities will hire you in a heartbeat.
