Hello- I don't know how to get this in, but of interest to the ongoing high school credit for Middle School issue (Board Policy D46.01), from the Seattle Times:


Wash. Board of Education Revises Math Requirement
By The Associated Press

GIG HARBOR — The State Board of Education has made a minor revision in the high school math credit requirements.

During a meeting in Gig Harbor on Friday, the board gave students more flexibility in their choices for high-school math.

The board decided earlier that beginning with the class of 2013, high-school students will be required to earn three credits of math to earn a diploma.

When the requirement was changed, the state rule said students who took a high-school-level math class without credit as an eighth-grader were required to repeat that same course for credit in high school.

The state board decided Friday that students can choose to start with a different math class in high school and don't have to repeat the eighth-grade class if they don't want to.

Thanks for posting this!
Of the candidates in Position #8 for City Council, David Miller has some great ideas on how to build partnerships with the school district to not just support quality education of our children, but also to maximize the use of our green space so the neighborhood and the schools benefit.
I've worked with David and find that he not only listens to neighborhood concerns, but thinks outside the box to find intelligent solutions. Expect thorough and thoughtful answers from him tonight!
