Back to back meetings tomorrow

For those interested in all things WPS, we're having two meetings tomorrow night:

  • Teaching, Learning, and Student Supports is having their second meeting in two weeks tomorrow night at 5:30. You can find the agenda here (sorry, bad connection, link to follow). Two biggies on the agenda: an update on curriculum renewal, and the implementation on the Common Core standards (which are linked).We haven't yet seen the back-up on this, and there isn't one yet posted. There's also a review of the application process for preschool (timely!), crew team participation, and a bit on civics education. That will be broadcast live on Channel 11; it will be at the Durkin Administration Building on the 4th floor.
  • We're also having our next meeting of Mayor Petty's Ad-Hoc Committee on a possible IB and/or exam school. Please note that we are not issuing the final report tomorrow night. The Ad-Hoc committee will be reviewing two reports from administration: one from Mr. Perda regarding admissions, and one from Mr. Allen on budget. The committee will then vote to recess to executive session for the purposes of reviewing a draft report, which will be public next month. That meeting is at 7:30 in the Levi Lincoln room in City Hall (3rd floor, turn right).
