Correction

Not long after The Journal got on the street we received a call and letter from Beth Hedges about an error in the paper. The following is Phyllis Cook's reply and then the letter from Ms. Hedges. 

Dear Ms. Hedges
 
Thank you for your letter.
You are 100 percent right and I was wrong.
Not sure how I did it, but I got to the wrong excel spreadsheet on the VDOE website and thought I was working off of the new report.
 
After I send this response to you, I will rewrite the article and send it to my boss for placement on our website.
I have likewise requested that the corrected replacement article also appear in next week's issue and have asked that my apology and correction regarding Potomac's success be placed in a prominent location on the front page.
 
I made a mistake and sincerely regret the error.

Phyllis Cook

 

Ms. Cook,
 
I received a copy of the Journal today, August 19, 2009 and read with total frustration your article entitled "School division, KGHS meet federal achievement objectives". I do agree that KGHS met the "mark under NCLB" , but you have your information wrong regarding Potomac Elementary School. As of last week, the Virginia Department of Education officially announced that Potomac Elementary did make AYP. The information is posted on the VDOE website. Letters have been received from VDOE stating that Potomac met AYP.
 
I serve this community in a variety of ways, one being the Math Resource teacher at Potomac. I know the hard work that the teachers and staff have been doing to "meet the mark". I know the hard work that the students have been doing to "meet the mark". I would appreciate it if you would finally step up and give credit to the students, teachers, and staff of Potomac and publicly announce that you have made an error in your article regarding our school.
 

Beth Jo Hedges
Math Resource Teacher
Potomac Elementary School
