According to the state website, Walnut Grove STAR scores all rose this year compared to last year so it can't be about declining test scores. The central office administration has in the past tried to intimidate principals that if the scores fell, the principal would be removed. Walnut Grove STAR scores all rose.

However, out of the blue, Ahmadi and Odie Douglas have been pushing the 'year round' school year calendar that parents, students and teachers are all against. It was even in the newspapers a couple of weeks ago. Maybe all the principals were hauled into the central office downtown and told to get on board with the program of all students will be in school all year with no summer vacation or else.

Everyone agrees that Ahmadi has handled this extremely poorly, the students at Walnut Grove who have gone through 4-5 recent principals have been traumatized by this and Vranesh should be reinstated immediately.
