After the stunning news last week the Delaware Secretary of Education Dr. Steven Godowsky was blowing off the Accountability Framework Working Group’s recommendation of lighter opt-out penalties for the Delaware School Success Framework, the group is meeting for an encore on Tuesday morning, 11/17, at 10am. This is two days before the State Board of Education will make their final decision on the ESEA waiver. Interestingly enough, Regulation 103 (which ties the school report card mess into state code) is not up for a vote at this meeting, which means December will most likely be the vote for that.
Somewhat related to this, I’m hearing the DOE employee named Ryan Reyna who works in the accountability area and was one of the controversial Race to the Top positions that should have been cut from the DOE is in all likelihood leaving the DOE very soon. Reyna was one of the key DOE employees involved in the AFWG group.
If you are available on Tuesday morning, this meeting will be open to the public and will have public comment. I strongly suggest attending this meeting and making your voice known on this subject!!!!!
Here is the agenda for this meeting:
