Today we had only below basic and basic students at school. If the student received advanced proficient or proficient on any exam last year, they have this entire week off, and the next for Spring Break. Interesting thought process....reward proficiency with no school. But, alas, here we are.
Anyway, the "gap" students showed up today and we had an interesting thing happening. First of all, I had some students for five hours. Five hours. One day. Horrifying. I do not know how elementary teachers do it. You know? Sometimes you like a student, but not that much.
But the worst part -- the kids some how got a hold of the schedule. And now they know they were in the "below basic" group versus the "basic" group. Embarrassing for the kids. Embarrassing for the staff member who was too dumb to not think of basic human emotions.
