Re: Second Board Agenda Request -- Resolution Concerning High Stakes, Standardized Testing - TASA and TASB

I appreciate you bringing the resolution to the Board's attention.  However, after the Briefing discussion, I did not get a sense that there was a consensus for this item to move forward for consideration.  As such, I will not add it to the agenda for the April 26, 2012 Board meeting for discussion and possible adoption.

However, as I indicated during the Briefing, if three (3) trustees request that the resolution be placed on the agenda, I will honor the request.  As of today, you are the only trustee who has made the request.  Please note, the agenda will be approved for posting by 3:00 p.m. Friday, April 20.
