According to a reliable school administrator within Jefferson Elementary School, NY State Testing scores are being falsely reported. Cindy Slotkin, the principle at the school, intentionally did not forward tests of children that are known to have low grade averages. This illegal trickery has been going on since she was appointed the position of principle over 5 years ago.
This practice is highly used in under performing schools in order to unfairly mislead the districts residential community into thinking that the school is performing better than it really is. According to this source, Cindy Slotkin is also aware of a large number of students that are attending Jefferson Elementary School who do not reside in any of the New Rochelle Districts.
Do not be misled. Cindy Slotkin isn’t alone in this manipulation. The New Rochelle City School Board along with all the Superintendents are very much aware of these infractions and are just as much to blame as Cindy Slotkin.
I for one would like to see resignation letters drawn up by Cindy Slotkin as well as Richard Organisciak and their termination made effective immediately for this illegal deception to provide false information.
I’m sure that the Mayor’s and City Manager’s hands are involved with this deception as well, but I don’t have a reliable source, at this time, to confirm their involvement.
