“Choice” Media Availability

ISBE will have the Director of Planning and Policy, Lynne Haeffele Curry, available to answer questions detailing how school districts who received an “early alert” letter in July were placed on a preliminary list to receive this courtesy notice about their schools. The list, which is based on preliminary data, alerted districts that these schools may have to offer “Choice” under the No Child Left Behind provisions.

Haeffele will answer questions about Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), Choice, and criteria for Academic Warning List (AWL).

The list of schools and the letter that went out will be posted Thursday morning on the ISBE website at

The media availability is via phone on Thurs., Aug. 7, at 1 p.m. and may be accessed by calling:
