High School Adoption Schedule for Seattle.

The first meeting was on December 4, 2008.

March 12 -- Final recommendations from "Core" committee
March 17 -- Final recommendations from "Advanced" committee
March 18 - 31 -- IMC approves final recommendations
April 8 -- Board work session
April 22 -- Adoption proposed at board meeting
May 6 -- Board vote

I am still amazed that a school district that is ignoring the WA k-8 math standards and the National Math Advisory Panel recommendations, expects to be taken seriously about a high school math adoption.

Since the district administration has chosen not to efficiently teach children arithmetic and does not prepare them for success in an authentic algebra class, why would they be having a high school math adoption?
As Director Darlene Flynn said: "The district does not have a good record with math adoptions."

The SPS seems headed to consistent choices .. just one disaster after another.
