From DPI…

State Superintendent June Atkinson and State Board of Education Chairman
Howard Lee will hold a media briefing on Thursday, Sept. 6, to discuss
school performance on the 2006-07 ABCs/AYP accountability report. The
briefing will be held at 10 a.m. in Room 224 of the Education Building, 301
N. Wilmington Street, Raleigh. The State Board is expected to have approved
the results earlier that morning.

The ABCs of Public Education is North Carolina’s primary school improvement
program. Its goals are to provide strong local school accountability, an
emphasis on mastery of basic subjects and as much local decision making as
possible.

This is the second year results have been reported using the new growth
formulas. Also this year, new assessments were in place for Algebra I,
Algebra II, Geometry and English I to reflect revisions in the North
Carolina curriculum in these subject areas and in NC EXTEND1 and NC EXTEND2
for some students with disabilities.

The ABCs report will be available online Sept. 6 at 9 a.m. at
http://abcs.ncpublicschools.org in addition to the news release and other
information. For more information, please contact the NCDPI’s Communications
division at 919/807-3450.
