IN THE NEWS: Justice celebrates staff efforts

Posted on Oct. 17 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
The word is out: Justice Intermediate is a fantastic school, and we have fantastic teachers and students!

We were the spotlight story in today's Chronicle-Tribune!

Here's some of what they had to say:

From the Chronicle-Tribune

Justice Intermediate School is expecting significant improvement when the school’s accountability grade is released in November, but administrators and staff are celebrating their hard work now.

A staff celebration at Justice was scheduled to coincide with the official release of the grades from the Department of Education, but the DOE voted to table the grades until its November meeting. The celebration, with members of the Marion Community Schools board continued as planned on Thursday morning to honor teachers for their hard work.

“Our teachers are on the front line serving our kids every single day and they serve our students well,” said Superintendent Brad Lindsay. “It’s been such a positive transformation here at Justice and as a result of their teamwork and collaborating together and being very intentional with every single student to deliver the learning that’s necessary.”

Administrators at the building and district level said the hard work has paid off and Justice will continue to improve and move forward.

“It’s been difficult being an F and a D. They get defeated. They’re not F teachers and this isn’t an F school. Those aren’t F students, but the culmination of those things continues to happen and you kind of start looking at yourself and doubting yourself as a teacher and it’s important that they know they are not F teachers,” Richards said. “They can be better than that. I think just that collective breaking through, just like we deal with kids who feel like they don’t read very well, you have to process through. It’s always looking forward for the better part. The teachers are dedicated to being better.”

Lindsay said he is expecting to announce good news across the district when the grades are released in November.
