Call to Reduce Testing - In an op-ed printed in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Greg Taranto, middle school principal in the Canon-McMillan SD, calls for changes in standardized testing requirements. "We have been designated as one of 350 'schools to watch' nationwide, not for our test scores, which are very good, but instead for the ways in which we engage the 'whole child,'" he writes.

At a school board meeting last week, middle school Principal Greg Taranto said the Canon-McMillan community, teachers, students, board members and administrators were all to thank for the accomplishment.
Its something that needs to be celebrated, not just in the middle school, but across the district and the community, Taranto said.
Taranto said he has seen the middle school change and grow a great deal over the last 15 years. The middle school is very different than it was when I joined as an administrator, Taranto said last week, ... and because of a series of things that occurred community support, board support and a focus with our instructional staff and administration we were able to turn things around and really do some special stuff.
What was once a middle school only by name has evolved to include programming and instruction specifically tailored to middle school-aged children, Taranto said.
He said school administrators made a concerted effort to hire teachers with a passion for teaching middle school students and handling the unique set of experiences that come with that age group.
Its really made a difference, he said. Weve had great support from our school board in that regard and giving us the autonomy of hiring.
In addition to tweaking the hiring qualifications, Taranto said the schools programming is dynamic and ever-changing, and teachers focus on a broad range of goals rather than fixating on standardized test scores. Paul Scarmazzi, president of the school board, said it has been a privilege to see positive growth at the middle school over the past four years under the direction of Taranto and Assistant Principal Kenneth Schrag.
Dr. Taranto and Mr. Schrag approach educating children and working with their team in a holistic manner that is inspirational to me, he said in a news release.
