A.Head of School Report

There are 42 applications in now.
 
Prong one of special education is closed out; prong two should be closed out November 29.  We have been identified as having a disproportionate amount of African American students identified as special education, which is common in schools that have high percentages of minorities. The first step toward justifying our identifications is a self-assessment.
