School board agenda for Tuesday, May 10

Some of the items on this week’s board agenda:

We’ll talk about a proposal to change our aspirational class size goals to create somewhat smaller class sizes at schools that have higher rates of kids receiving free- or reduced-price lunch (a proxy for low-income households), kids receiving special education services, and kids in the English language learner program. The rationale is that those groups have shown significantly lower proficiency rates on reading and math tests, and so have a higher level of need. More information here.

We’ll hear our quarterly financial report. More information here.

We’ll continue our discussion of redistricting. I am hopeful that at this meeting or the next one, we will resolve our secondary boundary situation one way or another. More information here.

The full agendas are here and here. Feel free to chime in with a comment about anything that catches your attention.
