Dan Kuebler Alerts Parents Of High Drop Out Rate
The below was forwarded to all on January 25th, 2013 – I’m again forwarding it after reading a MD State Board report yesterday that for last year’s school year, 2011-2012, Somerset County had the “third worst” dropout rate in the State!! This most unfavorable data point is coupled with the financial report that shows for the same school year, our per student cost for Somerset was $13,900 – fourth highest in the State!! Fellow Board members, we must make “drop out rate” and its predecessor “truancy” – ---“SCPS BOE Special Items of Importance” such that our Administration will develop and implement a “correction plan” to these two, greatly disturbing and failing issues. We must get our “bang for the taxpayers bucks” – and these statistics patently show we are throwing good dollars down the drain. Time for immediate action – lets really take a hard look at “Graduation Matters – Somerset”.
