Similar story, except I retired just before the move to the brand new building.

Both

My district used both for a period of time. We found MAP took a very long time to complete for the whole school, provided growth over time, but we didn't really change any instructional situations...

This was exactly my situation and yes, I felt very much the same way. Even after year 2 of retirement, I still have mixed feelings. Having done a bit of subbing, I do know now I made the right...
