material from Duke University that
indicated she did have the grades
"After this, I wonder if all of this
is intentional," she said.
Mrs. Bolin said she checked
with Principal Goforth and all of
Crissy's teachers, and that some
teachers had told her that they
"turned in" Crissy's name for
"This is too many mistakes for
one child," she said.
Goforth said in a telephone in-
terview Tuesday that the matter
was "an oversight on the teachers’
Goforth explained that team
teachers decided the criteria for
outstanding academic achievement.
"It doesn't necessarily mean high-
est average," he said. "Teachers
were to list their outstanding aca-
demic achievers. There are no
guidelines. It's up to the teachers. I
can't tell them how to choose that."
Asked why Crissy's name was
marked through on one of the
awards and another student's name
written in on the list brought to the
Herald for publication, Goforth
said the list was prepared in early
May and "when they got the final
averages they averaged some more
scores in for accelerated reader and
changed that one."
Goforth said after investigating
the situation he chose to present
awards to Crissy also, because
teachers of other "teams" interpret-
ed highest academic achievement
to mean the students with the high-
est grade averages.
"Crissy's team chose to do some-
thing different, so just to be consis-
tent with what other teams were
doing we decided to go with
averages also," he said.
Goforth said in the future the
school will probably "get away
from averages altogether and go
with end of grade testing reports.
That's consistent across the grade.
All kids are doing exactly the same
"A 100 in one class may not be
as difficult to attain as a 95 in an-
other class," he said. "To be fair
across the grade levels we need to
go to end of grade test results.
Everybody's on the same playing
"Highest academic achiever does
not specifically give you a guide-
line," he added. "To me a child
who achieves greater than what
you thought their potential was
might be the highest achiever. If
we say highest academic average
that spells out what we'll do."
