    How did you do? We tanked. Much worse than last year. Can't wait to hear our useless principal yell at us at the first staff meeting. Program Improvement Year 5, here we come!

    Long before NCLB and back when our state testing wasn't very difficult, I had a superintendent who would yell at the whole district on the first day of inservice. He never figured out that yelling at us did not inspire us at all! The high school and junior high scores were weak but the elementary level scores were fabulous so elementary teachers just had to sit and listen to him gripe. The yelling only made us mad so I can definitely empathize with you.

    Is there a curriculum specialist in your district or at your school to help you out? I hope y'all find a workable plan to implement.

    Is this the same test they're making high schoolers pass in order to graduate?

    CSTs are the general standards tests for all grades (starting in 2nd). The one required to get a high school diploma in Cali. is the CAHSEE.
