South Kansas City Rage Against Hickman Mills School District Alternative Accreditation Plan



A scathing update from this hyperlocal blog outlines a new accreditation scheme underway in the Hickman Mills School District and ongoing frustration with low test scores that don't live up to Statewide standards . . .

SKCA: Where’s the accountability?

Money line . . .

"Because Hickman Mils can’t score above provisional accreditation, it is pursuing an “alternative” accreditation. This is laughable. The only accreditation that counts, the only one anyone looks at, is the State accreditation. Shame on the Superintendent for chasing this sham and shame on the school board for agreeing . . . "

So this guy the school district put in charge of educating the kids came from a job where he was in charge of operations? No wonder the test scores are so bad.

I agree the idea of asking for another form of accreditation is stupid, proficient does not mean grade level on the Missouri exams. Basic, is a closer equivalent. Just by the definition of the words or how the state defines the levels.

Hickman Mills is a mirror of KCMOPS. Grifters making money while the system keeps steadily pumping out hookers, pimps, breeders, dope slingers and aspiring rappers.

Thanks for posting this! Everyone in Hickman Mills needs to know about this and the other "scams" Carpenter has been pulling at the expense of the students and community. Carpenter even told the teachers and staff during their opening "ceremony" that the State assessment didn't mean anything and he was pursuing this alternative option. He was able to push through millions of dollar bond issue (with the help of is "community leaders" - shame on them) which includes all new office space for the administrators - including his private bathroom, magnet schools (similar to the KC school system) at Baptiste and Santa Fe, dividing the former Hickman Mills HS into two schools, and other expensive ideas that will have little or no impact on the test scores of the majority of the students. WAKE UP Hickman Mills Community!

What ever happened to only rewarding administrators for results? As it stands now there are nearly as many non-teachers as teachers in the district. How can that model work?
