High priority takes a slow boat

Ten weeks after being notified by the state Department of Education that it fell short of the federal benchmarks for two consecutive years, the system finally got around to telling parents. Letters about the system's shortfall were sent out with students' report cards last week, two and a half months after the system received an e-mail from the Tennessee Department of Education about its "High Priority" status. From the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal
When will these folks learn that communication with parents, those very parents they say they want to partner with in the education of these students, must be a priority?
