Grade Card for the District. How say you?

What is the general feeling about results being produced by the Richland 2 School Board since November 2022?

They've been busy. Lots of meetings. What are the results?

Have significant steps been taken to improve the academic results of students? Will students be better qualified for further education or work at the time of graduation? Granted, change in that category is like turning a battleship. But has the rudder moved?

Are the right people in place to produce a positive result?

Have attendance rates improved?

Have disciplinary actions gone down? What's happening with discipline? Are changes in the wind? What type of changes? What is being done to instill the concept of higher personal responsibility in students?

What's going on with DEI? (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) Is that still a huge consideration? Or has Richland 2 come to the conclusion that Accomplishment and Merit are more important than the woke ideas of DEI?

How is employee morale? Up? Down? Unchanged? On a scale of 1-10, where is morale - on the average? Is it high? Low? Why?

Does every employee have a clear job description that is not just HR boilerplate? Are employee expectations clear? Attainable?

I know that, for many of the job openings I explored in the business world, one look at the Job Description caused me to wonder how many people were going to be hired to do that (one) job.
