We also know that CASA plays an important role in helping to protect the most vulnerable children in our community, and the role of our local schools and teachers in educating our children is critical to our future. We are pleased to be able to provide support for these three child-focused grants.”

Goodrich Named Classified Employee of the Year at GSC

Carol Goodrich, who works as the Administrative Assistant in the Glenville State College Department of Business, has been named the 2016 GSC Classified Employee of the Year. GSC President Dr. Peter Barr presented the award to Goodrich during the annual employee holiday luncheon on December 16.

“Being an Administrative Secretary is one of the most satisfying jobs I have ever had. I enjoy working with the incoming freshmen and watching them go from their first year here to becoming a senior and graduating. The faculty at GSC make me feel like this my second home and I enjoy working with all of them. The secretaries in other departments have always been willing to help out whenever asked without question. Everyone at GSC has made me feel welcome and like part of a big family,” Goodrich said.

Nominations for the recognition cite Goodrich’s “warm, caring, and supportive nature,” her contagious enthusiasm, and note that she is always professional and respectful. Another nomination said, “Carol is always smiling and approaches every person with a kind heart and helpful attitude.” A Business Department professor noted her humility, stating, “She does not seek accolades and glory but throws herself fully into supporting our department.”

A true Gilmer Countian, Goodrich was born in Sand Fork, West Virginia and currently resides in Normantown. She graduated from GSC with an associate’s degree in 1997 and an RBA degree in 2007. During her over 17 years working at GSC she has served as Administrative Secretary for several academic departments including Land Resources, Business, Criminal Justice, and Social Science. She also worked in the Business and Finance Office for a short time.

Carol and her husband Dallas have a daughter, Carrie Mann, and a son, Dallas W. Goodrich (Jessica). Together they have four grandsons, five granddaughters, and one great-grandson.

When she isn’t at work, Goodrich enjoys spending time with her family, whether at home or while attending sporting events. She is also a Notary Public.

She becomes the 28th recipient of the award that has been presented at GSC since 1986.

CommunityConcerns™: The State’s A-F Grading System Inflates Letter Grades For Schools

The Free Press WV

Long awaited A-F grades for West Virginia’s schools were released by the West Virginia Board of Education (WVBE) on November 16, 2016. The new grading system caused considerable controversy and its vocal critics included teachers, the West Virginia Education Association, and county school system administrators.

After the grading system’s details and grades were made public more controversy is spreading throughout the State. A major criticism is that the WVBE’s grading system caused grade inflation with disclosure that measures were taken to improve A-F grades for public consumption.

Consider high schools as an example. For reading and math proficiency each of the two categories was allocated 250 possible points to potentially total 500 points.  A total composite score, to be used to determine a final letter grade, involved adding points for ten other categories of variables for a possible total score of 1500 points. Assuming that a high school got 500 points for reading and math that would mean that for the two academic areas that score would be 500/1500 possible points=33.3%  of a total score. The effect is that points for the 10 other categories have more weight in determining a final score as the basis for a high school’s letter grade.

Also, based on a standard grading scale used in education a high school can have F grades for reading and math and still get a C or a higher grade.

According to the WVDE’s adjusted A-F grading system with 1500 possible points for a high school and total scores expressed as percentages,  54.66% would be an A compared to 49.38% for a B, 41.43% for a C, and 36.21% for a D. This proves that the WVDE made adjustments to inflate A-F grades for high schools.

If the WVDE wants to be transparent with how the State’s high school students are truly performing in math and reading proficiency, a separate letter grade should be assigned for those subjects with use of the education profession’s long standing A-F grading system to avoid grade inflation and sending wrong signals to the public.

Regardless of what happens next the WVDE has legal authority to impose its school grading system on WV’s counties. The special challenge to counties is what to do next.

The obvious choice is to set their own standards for proficiency for reading, math and other subjects. Then, their elementary, middle, and high schools could be managed accordingly to prepare high school graduates to be career and college ready.
