THANKS
Thanks and congratulations to WASFAA President Steve Schuetz, the other WASFAA officers, and the members of the WASFAA Conference Planning Committee for another great conference. I really liked the new agenda (even though I missed Thursday due to my daughter’s illness). Great job and thanks to all who volunteered to put this together.

NEW FEDERAL ACADEMIC GRANTS INFORMATION
Elizabeth Burmaster, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, has called a meeting for next Tuesday, May 16, to determine if Wisconsin will submit an alternative definition of a rigorous secondary program of study, or affirm the four pre-approved options. I will get information out to you Wednesday morning with the results of that meeting - and how it shakes out for your students.

FLAT FILE WILL BE ELIMINATED December 1, 2006
There are a few schools still receiving the FLAT FILE. Please be aware that we will no longer produce that file after December 1, 2006.
