D.P.S. Goes For Transparency in Report Card Meetings
DAYTON -- Right now parents, students, and administrators of Dayton Public Schools are getting together to discuss the district poor report cards and ways to get their grades up.
* Sept. 25 at Thurgood Marshall High School
* Oct. 8 at Kiser PreK-8 School
* Oct. 10 at Stivers School for the Arts
The district has been struggling for years and in the latest report, they met 2 out of the possible 24 standards last year and ranked near the bottom of the 16 districts in Montgomery County.
"Dayton public schools has been trying to play catch-up," said one parent. "Sometimes they'll catch up a little bit fall back little more catch up a little bit again.
"They could be a lot better because the school is one of the schools with low grades," said D.P.S. parent Regina Richardson.
At these meetings DPS Officials will talk about the report cards and what they're doing to get their numbers up. They say it's important to have these meetings so they can be completely transparent with the public.
"Our public entrust their children to come to us," said Dayton Public Schools Director of Public Information Jill Moberley. "They entrust us to educate their children and we would like to hear from them and what they're looking for in the education of their children."
Moberley says New Literacy Programs And a new Early College High School are part of the many improvements the district is making, But some parents say DPS has been hosting meetings and making promises for years.
The school board hopes to draw large crowds at these forums so the parents can have as much say in their child's' education as possible.
"Can't depend on the schools alone parents have to be involved too that's why I go to these meetings every now and then," said a D.P.S. parent.
We have a crew inside the meeting right now taking your questions to DPS administrators and Tonight on ABC 22 at 11 we will be getting those answers for you.
