Waverly Middle School identified as Focus School by the New York State Department of Education

District officials have been notified by the New York State Department of Education that Waverly Middle School has been identified as a Focus School and the district as a Focus District due to students with disabilities not making sufficient progress on the New York State English/Language Arts and math assessments.

"It is unfortunate - but opportunistic - that the school will have this label," said Superintendent Randy Richards. "I am disappointed for the students, staff and community. However, I have been involved in similar issues before and I am confident that in the end, our educational program instruction and student learning and achievement will be better for it," Dr. Richards said.

According to Dr. Richards, the next steps in the process include an Integrated Intervention Team (IIT) from the state Education Department visiting the district in May to look at practices and determine recommendations for improvement. The IIT, using a review model, will look at broad areas including instruction, decision making processes, leadership capacity, practices and decisions, curriculum development and support, teacher practices and decisions, student social and emotional developmental health and family and community engagement. The results of the study will be used as a diagnostic tool for school improvement.

The district also has hired Education Consultant Dr. Jean Papandrea to guide the district through the review and improvement process and to work with Director of Curriculum and Instruction Georgia Weed to prepare for the review team's visit and then implement the recommendations for improving student achievement.

"This process will give us a chance to look at how we conduct business and identify those areas where we need to improve," said Dr. Richards. "I believe there is a silver lining in this cloud, as it will be a galvanizing issue that will bring our teachers, parents and community members together for the good of our students."
