Appreciating that a mock vote happened last week at the BoE meeting, I am hopeful the BoE will at least separate the votes and take two ballots -- one for deleveling the middled schools and one for introducing the IB Middle Years Program. That would be an authentic and transparent act as they are fully separate endeavors. Marian Cutler
