State Board of Education Delays Proc 2016

The State Board of Education voted July 18 to delay implementing Proclamation 2016 – which would provide new instructional materials for languages other than English - until the opening of school in the fall of 2017.

At the earlier meeting of the Committee of the Full Board, IMCAT Pres. Susan Lenox testified to the financial pinch that local districts are facing with two huge blocks of instructional materials in 2014 and 2015. (Video of her testimony is available by clicking here. RealPlayer required).

The move, contingent on appropriations of the Legislature, would give local schools as much as $79 million more to spend on new Social Studies and high school math instructional materials. That translates to about $16 per student, but with skyrocketing publisher costs, districts can use all the help they can get.
