No written evaluation of CEP done by PPS

On the February "Start a new post" Kathy Fine wrote:

In the contract between the district and Community Education Partners (CEP), the private firm hired to administer the Clayton facility for behaviorally troubled students, there is a requirement that states "At the conclusion of the first year and every year after, CEP will participate with the District Review Team in an annual assessment of student academic and behavioral performances."

PURE Reform requested a copy of said review for the first year under the "Right To Know Act" and was told, "it has been determined that there is no public record responsive to your request....Although the District Review Team and CEP have met annually to review performances, such meetings have not produced written records" and that "Furthermore, the reviews were based upon individual student's academic, discipline and attendance records, which are not public records..."

This is certainly not the transparency that we are longing for.

- It is difficult to believe that no written evaluation is being done on work under a $30M+ contract.
