Coming up at KBE

The Kentucky Board of Education begins a two-day meeting tomorrow, and I'd rank four items as most likely to generate major news:
  • New discussion on what is and isn't working to raise student performance in Christian, Jefferson and Union counties and Covington Independent.
  • A matching discussion of what is and isn't working to raise performance statewide, as shown in recently released test scores.
  • Work on the Board's legislative agenda and budget requests for 2010, likely to include steps that could enhance Kentucky's chance at Race to the Top funding.
  • Selection of an "additional indicator" to be used for NCLB decisions about elementary and middle school progress.
Check out the full agenda and briefing papers, or watch the webcast staring at 9 a.m. each day.
