    I have spent nearly 1/2 hour in attempt to respond to question #2. I give up. I’ll spend my time in my classroom.

  2. Thanks to all who participated in this weeks Contest. The answer to our question was: The SGIC considered the proportion of the common school component that should be attributed to the teacher and determined that 50 percent of the common school component should be included in the teacher value-added score.

I just happened to be in between two and could only access twitter on my phone, which, according to your directions, is acceptable. What’s the deal?
