Sorry make you wait, but I just found out the thing has an audio track and I wanted to listen to it.

I wondered if Alvin was doing something like you mentioned (sick minds think alike?), but I canít find any evidence of it.

The whole IE2 thing is driven by the individual schoolís contracts as opposed to the entire system Ė a bit of irony Iíll get to in a minute. Although IE2 has specific targets specified in the contracts, the CRCT/AYP data used to measure individual schools is exactly the same data used for NCLB. The big difference is IE2 has no counterpart to NCLB standards for an entire school system. This means the schools that were cut donít exist as far as IE2 is concerned, for either assessment or sanctions. Individual schools without an IE2 contract will remain under the GCPS control regardless of what happens with schools which are under contract.

The ironic part is that the BoE jumped all over IE2, but actively lobbies to have state standards, like that 65% (or whatever the number is) thing applied to the entire system instead of individual schools.

There is obviously a reason for this, but I just havenít found it yet.
