Dear Wilson Middle School Parent/Guardian

The bolded words are mine.

As Part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2002, Title 1 schools that have not met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP for two or more consecutive years must provide parents the opportunity to move their child/children into a school that has made AYP. Transportation is free. AYP for Wilson is determined by the WASL scores of our students and their unexcused absence rate.

If your neighborhood school sucks you're legally allowed to choose a different school at our expense.

In 2007-08, Wilson students met all participation requirements in reading and math but didn't make proficiency requirements. Our goal in 2008-09 is to have all students also meet the proficiency requirements in both reading and math.

We suck but we'll try harder next year.

Wilson staff is committed to the success of our school and to provide quality education for each of our students. With the support of the District, we have completed a comprehensive needs assessment and implemented a school improvement plan that will be continued this year. District representatives were involved in the development of our plan and have also implemented a District Improvement Plan.

We even have a plan, the acronym is DIP.

Each of our middle schools has been identified for improvement which eliminates school choice as an option in our district. If you have questions contact me at 573-2401 or by email at

You don't really get to choose a different school because all the middle schools in the district have failed. Any questions?
