As an AP student, exams are stressful enough without having to make sure the administration follows the rules.

Because 2 students were seated closer than 60 inches apart, the entire group needs to retake the test is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Have those 2 students retake the test; otherwise, let it go!

Spot the errors in just one sentence from Ms H. Wheeler's email: Thank you for you patience this past week while we waiting and for your understanding with this typo. The "typo" was sending out the wrong date for the re-test. The list from the Principal has more re-taking Spanish AP than took took it the first time. Even if the number taking it next Fri is correct they all cannot be re-takes. This is typical of the lack of care taken by faculty and staff at Gunn. Mistakes happen more frequently when there are no consequences and when you have an attitude of not owning the mistake. Note its "this typo "not "my typo". Of course it is not a typo. You do not hit the 0 key accidentally instead of the 7 key. When the consequences of mistakes are serious as they clearly are in this case adherence to the rules should be checked and rechecked. This is not the fault of the proctors, who I understand are volunteers, but those in charge who should be providing adequate instruction and supervision.

Little has been said of how these mistakes were discovered. My understanding is the seating plan revealed two adjacent students were given the same paper. I surmise that the seating plan did not give distances and that was then investigated. If there was an on site observation it would have been discovered immediately.

You now no why pay rises based on performance are so vigorously resisted by the teacher's union. The many excellent teachers at Gunn and elsewhere who have to observe the inequity at close hand have my sympathy. It will be those teachers who will be putting the welfare of the students first.

Thanks Emily for setting this up. At least we can vent even if the school ignores it.

It is absolutely unacceptable that a school which has been administering AP tests for decades should mess this up and still force its students to take finals. Gunn High School is stressful enough.
