I attended this evening's ESEA Public School Choice Meeting at Chamblee High School. Here are some highlights:
- The term "NCLB" is no longer being used - ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) is the preferred term.
- AYP reports were to be released by the GADOE this week, but the release has been delayed until early next week.
- Dr. Audria Berry reviewed the high-level requirements for Public School Choice as required by ESEA.
- The following are the "Receiving" Schools for the 2010-2011 school year:
And I agree with the folks from Chamblee HS. They are going to further overcrowd an already over-crowded facility, so why was an annex not provided for Chamblee? Someone brought up having a Chamblee Annex at Cross Keys. Robert Moseley squashed that idea pretty quickly, but I think it certainly is worth taking a look at. So, basically, a school is better off not making AYP?
