SMDJ front page today reports that student academic scores haven’t improved in years…

The article says Belmont and San Carlos did better but nothing on Burlingame. Searching for the scores with Google was a dead end. Does anyone know where to find them?

Did you try the state site? https://www.cde.ca.gov/Ta/tg/ca/

This one is more user friendly, I think:

Thanks HMB. That second one is good. The overall results look very much the same as last year. English scores are down less than a percent and math up less than a percent, but there are much larger moves at the school level. BIS is similar while BHS had some improvement in English and a lot in math.

Per John Horgan's column yesterday an agreement has been reached although what it is was not made clear:

Advocates for increased funding for the Burlingame School District are breathing a sigh of relief this week. A potential rift between proponents of two different parcel tax plans has been avoided, at least for now.

The agreement to cooperate, rather than compete, was worked out late last month, according to Lisa Mudd, president of the district’s Board of Trustees.

“We are working together, in partnership” she said. “It’s not in the best interest of the district to have two parcel taxes (up for discussion). … It’s best to join forces.”
