Manchester school superintendent chided on audit
Superintendent Debra Livingston told the Board of School Committee that she expected to have specific recommendations in line with the audit, which would be referred to the relevant subcommittees, “very soon.”
The audit found that city schools lag well behind the state average in test scores and have made little or no improvement over the past four years.
Livingston, who became the school chief in July, said she has moved quickly in response to the issues she has been presented with. She pointed to the recent outcry over the Common Core State Standards and her decision to have the district develop its own Manchester Academic Standards
At its last meeting, the school board voted to back Livingston’s proposal for Manchester Academic Standards that would go beyond Common Core, the controversial national education benchmarks that are being pushed by the Obama administration.
