Tonight, of course, is the Dallas Independent School District board of trustees' called board meeting, at which the board will discuss and approve campus staffing formulas for the 2009-'10 school year; Schutze is attending, but of course. But at this very moment is the lengthy warm-up: a regular ol' board briefing, during which the board will be briefed on, among other things, how the district's dealing with the so-called over-age/under-credit student.
Here's the PowerPoint presentation, in which there's some discussion of the immediate need to create "an over-age alternative high school for students." But the board will also hear of the need to "design a true alternative high school geared toward the nontraditional student," which the Over-age Student Success Task Force (band name!) would like to open by no later than the 2011-'12 school year.
