This is a complete lie. Classes were non-existent. Students spent the day in the auditorium playing games! They were told if no power tomorrow then it would be more of the same. Why can't the teachers teach in groups in the auditorium/gym? If they can do "team-building excercises" and trivia games they can certainly do some modified lesson! I was told by my HS child that the Calhoun classes were also just a mix of "re-grouping" where they left off. One week away and everybody's lesson plan suddenly falls apart? This is unconscionable.

You can thank the BOE for this, they hired Kiernan. The BOE should be held accountable.
