Copley-Fairlawn Board of Education adopts a resolution opposing the
flawed school accountability system

Superintendent Brian Poe forwarded a copy of the resolution (click on
the URL below) with the note:

I have attached a resolution that the Copley-Fairlawn City Schools
Board of Education adopted on October 17, 2017. Vice President
Jessica Vargo voiced her concern with a system that does not
accurately reflect the success of Copley-Fairlawn students. Board
member Paul Cevasco shared his frustration with not receiving an item
analysis from the state. Superintendent Brian Poe questioned how the
state can delay providing Value-Added results for individual teachers
approximately seven months after the administration of the test. The
Copley-Fairlawn Board assigned a grade of "F" to the state
accountability system.

The folly of the flawed "reform" policies handed down from on high
has been tolerated too long. Local school officials have a fiduciary
responsibility to do what is best for students even if it involves
resisting the flawed policies of state and federal officials.
