The weather is wild out there today ; in Shoreline, a tree dropped on a city bus. The bus driver had to go to the hospital and was the only person on the bus. Good karma to all our students as they make their way home today from school.
The numbers are in from one state - Colorado - on their opt-outs of their state test (PARCC). From Chalkbeat Colorado:
More than 65,000 Colorado students were held out of last spring’s PARCC tests by their parents, according to newly released data that for the first time documents the strength of the so-called opt-out movement in the state.
Speaking of opting out, here's the state-mandated opt-out letter from Oregon's Department of Education. The paragraph in bold on page two is a good example of guilt-inducing heavy-handedness.
Here's a student data mistake you don't want to see happening ( from KATU):
Would you want your neighbors to know if your child was on a free or reduced lunch program at school? The Beaverton School District accidentally posted a map so you could figure it out if you wanted to.
The map is part of the Boundary Review Committee's analysis as it looks at the best ways to address high school boundary changes in Beaverton.
What's on your mind?
