FCAT panel off the line
The advisory panel convened to review problems with the FCAT is meeting in Orlando right now. The agenda looks to be interesting. Commissioner Eric Smith was supposed to make opening remarks around 1 p.m. and then kick off conversation on accountability testing. Then would come discussions on an expert's recommendations and on new rules coming related to school grades and alternative schools.
We hoped to be able to bring you news of this meeting. But an hour after first trying to join the session via conference call, we gave up, unable to get through. So instead we'll try to bring you information from the meeting at another time. If you've got some details, meanwhile, please add a comment below.
