To piggyback on another letter you received Inglewood school loses accreditation about Morningside High School losing its accreditation, and being placed on probation, here is a little more insight for the community to ponder.
It was mentioned at a meeting the other day that Morningside said they’d done teacher evaluations that they didn’t do. I’m sure there was more than that involved in the school losing its accreditation, but think about that: why would principal Kiwiana Cain, and her APs (assistant principals), lie about such a thing? That’s crazy.
Attached is IHS’ attendance for yesterday. It’s about 15 percent higher than normal for a usual Friday, as yesterday many seniors were gone to prepare for the prom. But we usually have at least 200 gone in just about every period of the day – especially during first and sixth periods.
That’s a quarter of the school!
But district officials have pushed relentlessly this spring for 95 percent of our students to have taken all standardized assessments, including the physical fitness test. We have literally received harassing emails every single day. We have nowhere near 95 percent attendance, so I don’t know how they think this is possible at the high school level. The only high school that has approached this in any way is, unsurprisingly, City Honors.
Aesthetically, the school has only been halfway upgraded. The only visible improvements is to the side facing Yukon Ave. where SoFi Stadium attendees park for events. If you travel east along 104th you see the district has done nothing with the remainder of the school.
If I were being petty I would assert there is intentional coordination to rid the school of students to justify closing them to build affordable housing on school property that the City is failing to due on their surplus land in favor of high-end developments that don’t benefit Inglewood taxpayers.
Staff in the district – are burned out, tired, and just exhausted from the incompetence.
