Meeting of the Board of Regents | October 2010
Report of the
P-12 EDUCATION COMMITTEE AND THE
AND CAREER READINESS WORKING GROUP
The Board of Regents
October 19, 2010
Your P-12 Education Committee and College and Career Readiness Working Group held a joint meeting on October 18, 2010. All members were present, except for Regent Norwood, who was excused.
Reporting of College- and Career-Ready High School Graduation Rates – Part II: Planning for the Transition – due to time constraints, this item was not discussed and will be brought back for discussion at the November Regents meeting. [CCR (A) 1]
MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Potential Revisions of High School Graduation Requirements – the Committee continued its discussion of the possible policy directions for the Regents to consider as they continue their discussions on how to prepare students for college and careers. Department staff will begin to engage stakeholders on the development of these ideas and begin working with the Regents to set up regional meetings around the state to provide comment and feedback on impact, sustainability, capacity and timelines related to these possible policy directions. [CCR (D) 1]
That concludes my report.
