Never had a principal like that!

We are free to leave at 3:30, and many teachers do. I often stay until 5 or 5:30, but 30-40 minutes of that is for exercising with a friend.

Cautious

I'm very cautious about retention. I work at a very small rural Title I school. Based on what you've said, I wouldn't retain those students. You didn't mention their reading levels...that would be...

Don't Assess
