Tomorrow, we will host our second Back-to-School Webinar for educators. About 900 participants have registered, and it’s not too late if you wish to join us as well. You may register atwww1.gotomeeting.com/register/326080664. The webinar will start at 10 a.m. and last about an hour. We will record it and post it on our website for playback at your convenience, if you miss it.


During the webinar, we will review several issues, including the flexibility we have under our No Child Left Behind waiver, implementation of the new Illinois Learning Standards based on the Common Core and the accompanying Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exams. We will also discuss teacher and principal evaluations and Report Card metrics.


I also want to make you aware of another webinar we’re working on, this one in partnership with the Illinois PTA. The first Back-to-School Webinar for parents is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 9. This webinar is geared specifically toward parents, and we’re hosting it at a time we hope will be more conducive to their participation.


We will cover many of the same topics as we’re covering in tomorrow’s webinar for educators, but with a slightly different focus. We’ll discuss how schools are putting in place the new Illinois Learning Standards and assessments aligned to those standards, and we will include local teachers to provide a classroom perspective. We’ll also focus on parent engagement and the partnerships necessary between families and local schools to help students reach their full potential. Interested parents can register at www1.gotomeeting.com/register/185876249. Please share this information with your school communities.


On Wednesday, the Board will meet by videoconference in Springfield and Chicago to discuss a variety of topics. You can review the agenda that is posted on our website at www.isbe.net. The meeting will also be carried live on our website, starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday.


Thanks and have a great week!
