Ocram: I did not attend the meeting, but I support both schools. My kids go to Lely. Lely will never be an A School until Lely learns that the students that they are trying to keep are not necessarily the children getting the full benefits of the school. For this school to become an A school, more concentration needs to be given to the kids in the middle and the kids at the top. The programs at this school that get added are mostly for the English second language at home students. This route will never bring the school up to anything other than C or D. The middle kids and top students need to be given additional programs not offered at other public schools to stir interest and keep the top students and funds coming in. If Lely would work more with the middle students that do not get the extra special attention, they could make a B grade. Concentrate on your middle B students and get them up to A's, along with your English challenged that you already are helping. Lely is a better school than what many portray and it is not the perfect school that the other side is portraying. It is a public school that works and does try very hard to accommodate, but with students flunking 2-3 grades and struggling,most all funding and effort goes to these needy students, fair? no, but of course part of a very liberal public school system.
