The art teacher doesn’t care whether her students are taking high school or college-level courses: If they aren’t keeping up, she’s going to tell them — and possibly their parents.
Kelli Park said she knows that not all teachers watch their students so closely, especially those taking Advanced Placement courses.
But she wants her students at Franklin Community High School to know when they’re falling behind so they can take steps to catch up before taking the test that determines whether they’ll receive college credit. And students’ parents, who often pay for their children to take the test, also have a right to know, she said.
“One of my main jobs is being the nag,” Park said.
