We just couldn't keep up with deleting the junk so we had to remove the ability for visitors to post comments.

About 75 attendees including around 18 teachers, 1 principal, 1 BSD School Board member, many parents and staff.
Brian introduced the new IEP forms that will be in use within a year. It is the DOE plan for all new IEPs going forward to use the new forms so that within a year all IEP teams will have met and used the new form. There are no plans to rewrite an existing IEP on the new form - only to create new IEPs using the new form.
Alex Rittberg opened with a few PTA annoucements.
The PTA had given Waggie dog biscuits to all the principals who have dogs. Waggies are natural dog biscuits made by a small startup in Wilmington run by young adults with cognitive disabilities. More details on www.waggies.org. Principals without dogs were given gourmet jelly beans.
Alex asked how people heard about the meeting - BSNPTA email, PIC email, Flyers via US Postal service, word of mouth.
Dr Tynan gave two presentations and gave out one handout.

It's the fifth anniversary of No Child Left Behind and we can consider the law a success despite serious flaws.
The federal education law is based on a yearly benchmark test that can't possibly measure real learning for all students accurately. The law is full of underfunded and onerous mandates. The achievement targets are unobtainable and the accountability component has too many problems to even list here.
