Lastly, when I return from a short vacation in LA I will post more info on what to expect for the Fall of 05.
Upcoming big topics include Student Assignment and our district's desegregation plan [see the archive], more anticipated budget cuts for 06/07 which may mean more school closures and/or layoffs/cutbacks, whether the Superintendent will retire or not and possibly choosing her replacement, etc.
