« Baltimore schools move toward opening day | Main | How much of a bonus does Andres Alonso deserve? »

Gearing up for 2009-2010

As I mentioned earlier this week and reported in today's paper, Dr. Alonso officially welcomed back city schools administrators, and laid out plans for the coming school year, during yesterday's CEO Leadership Institute.

For those who might be interested, here is Alonso's PowerPoint on the state of schools, which includes test data as well as information on city suspension, dropout and graduation rates, among other interesting tidbits.

And some of the most enjoyable parts of the event - the performances from some wonderfully talented students - are also online (no video, unfortunately, but several original poems are posted).
