 School Improvement Targets for SCALE and High School Ahead Academy for 2007-08
At the meeting of December 4, 2007, the consent agenda includes a recommendation to approve the proposed school improvement targets for SCALE and the High School Ahead Academy for the 2007-2008 school year. The State Board of Education allows three year school improvement plans for non-alternative schools, however, improvement targets for alternative schools must be approved by the local Board of Education annually. For the two SCALE sites, these are the same goals the board approved for the past three years with increased targets based on percentage increase from prior results.  For the High School Ahead Academy this is the first plan. If you have questions regarding this item, please contact Dr. Mack McCary, chief academic officer, at 370-8106 or Dr. John Morris, chief student services officer, at 370-8380, prior to the meeting.

  1. There was supposed to be a staff report presented at the December 4 meeting regarding the arts cuts. Any idea why it’s not on the agenda?

  2. That’s a good question; I was looking for the same item. I’ll try to find out…

  3. Thanks E.C. Here’s the link to the minutes from the October 25 BOE meeting, It says, “Chairman Duncan asked for a report regarding the status of the district’s planning with respect to arts education and scheduling issues. Chief Human Resources Officer Peggy Thompson said that information can be provided at the December 4 board meeting.”
