PENNSYLVANIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO MEET SEPT. 9 AND 10

 PENNSYLVANIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO MEET SEPT. 9 AND 10
 The Pennsylvania State Board of Education and its councils will meet Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 9 and 10, on the first floor of the Education Building, 333 Market St., Harrisburg, Pa.
 At 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Council of Basic Education will meet in the Honors Suite to receive a status report on revisions to student learning outcomes under the new curriculum regulations. When finished, the learning outcomes will define what knowledge and skills students are expected to have when they graduate from high school in Pennsylvania. In other business, the council will act on revisions to Special Education regulations.
 The Council of Higher Education also will meet at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Learning Center to receive progress reports on the master plan for higher education and the role of proprietary schools in post-secondary education.
 At 8:30 a.m., Thursday, the State Board of Education will meet in the Honors Suite to discuss the status of student learning outcomes. No vote will be taken on the learning outcomes at this meeting. The committee drafting revisions to the outcomes has been unable to schedule a meeting since mid-July because of normal summer scheduling problems, so the board's anticipated vote on the outcomes has been moved to the agenda for its next regularly scheduled meeting in November.
 In a letter sent this week to board members, committee co-chairs R. Gerard Longo and Madge K. Benovitz said: "Despite our strong desire to meet our deadlines and complete our work on the outcomes, some further deliberation is still required in an effort to try to accommodate the views of the House and Senate Education Committees and the Independent Regulatory Review Commission, while maintaining the intent of the new regulations. We now are nearing the end of this important regulatory proceeding which has been nearly three years in the making. We have conducted our business in the most open and public way possible, and the regulations have benefited greatly from that openness. This is no time for shortcuts."
 Action items for the board include adopting revisions to Special Education regulations and a Statement of Principles Regarding Educational Equity. Immediately following this meeting, the State Board for Vocational Education will meet.
 Media coverage is invited.
