The KIPP charter school arrived with a lot of fanfare and then promptly received the lowest grade in North East Florida and I am not exaggerating, the lowest.
The next year it got a miraculous B and in it’s third year it’s grade dropped all the way back down to a D, except it didn’t. You see that year Gary Chartrand helped push through a rule that said school grades could only drop one letter grade, so on the score card even though it earned a D, it said C.
Well KIPP is back to its old tricks.
From the Times Union:
The board also unanimously approved allowing two KIPP charter schools to join into one.
KIPP Voice, a kindergarten through fourth-grade school, and KIPP Impact, a middle school, currently operate in one building. The state allowed the two schools to become one and to take the highest state grade for its joint report card, so the new school will take KIPP Impact’s C rating instead of KIPP Voice’s D rating from last year.
I can’t make this
shit stuff up because if I did people would find it too unbelievable.
