To be honest, that teachers scores seem really low. I also teach kindergarten and admin assesses them using Dibels. It's expected that we have very little to no reds and yellows. Instead we should have all green and blue. Green meaning proficient.

I had one red, a child who is going to be referred to SPED for intellectual disabilities, and one yellow. I got no praise or notice for it because all the kids SHOULD be proficient especially on a test like Dibels which is pretty easy like you said - just quick letter and sound naming.

to the OP - that's ridiculous and I would definitely bring up data. I would ask what type of environment would be most conductive to learning, since it seems students are learning excellently in your environment. I would also throw out words like "differentiated" and "flexible" if you think it would help your case.
