Adminstrators in the Waverly school district are ready to submit their plan to get the middle school off the state's list of worst performing schools.

The middle school improvement plan will be sent to the Dept. of Education for approval. It includes a longer school day and optional summer school. There is also a new principal at the middle school.

The district will add an extra 28 minutes to each school day, giving students more time to learn or catch up on subjects.

An optional 10 day summer school program for seventh and eighth graders will begin in the summer of 2012.

The district also wants to evaluate teachers based on student achievement. That part of the plan will need union approval.

    Why not transfer those students to other schools. If waverly can teach them, send them to other schools who can.

    The first thing The Waverly School District needs to do to improve its performance is to let the kids stay in school when they are the ones being pushed into fights by other kids and then they both sometimes get kicked out so if they would teach the kids instead of pushing them out the doors every two to three weeks they might get better results.
