The Parkland school shooting is bringing new surveillance tech to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But will it work? - The Washington Post
"Your children are being watched. Their school has a surveillance system. A machine that spies on children every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect events that seem out of the ordinary, but it sees everything. Children where they shouldn't be, acting suspiciously, preying on other children. Children like yours. Activity your school administrators considered irrelevant. School shootings the government considered off-limits. They wouldn't act, so I decided I would..."

Progress 8 scores for most schools aren’t that different
There were over 300 schools with P8 scores between -0.05 and +0.05 – a difference of over 300 rank places (10% of schools) between the highest and lowest scoring of them. But what do these numbers mean?

Let’s say the score for School A was +0.05 and School B was -0.05. Taking the numbers at face value, one interpretation is that if you picked two pupils with the same KS2 attainment, the two pupils would have the same grades in seven of the subjects included in Attainment 8 but the pupil from School A would have one grade higher in one and only one subject than the pupil in School B.

Is this an educationally important difference?

Columbia City planning sidewalk to making walking connection for students at new middle school | Columbia Missourian | Local |
The city of Columbia plans to build a sidewalk on Sinclair Road in anticipation of the opening of a new middle school in fall 2020.

The 2,600-foot sidewalk is estimated to be in place by summer 2020, and it is expected to cost roughly $200,000. Money for the project will come from the city's quarter-cent capital improvements sales tax and the Columbia Public Schools reimbursement budget. The sidewalk will be along Sinclair between Nifong Boulevard and Southampton Drive.

Allison Anderson, a Columbia Public Works Department engineering supervisor, said the project is important for the new middle school, which will open in the fall of 2020.

“Mainly, this is for the students,” she said at an interested-parties meeting Wednesday. “They need a safe place to walk, whether they are traveling to church, school, a friend’s house.”
