ICSD Special education, state issues

There isn't much specific to Dryden in today's Ithaca Journal, but there is plenty of new that affects Dryden or some part of it.

The Ithaca City School District will be reviewing a report on its special education programs tonight. The article notes some ways in which Ithaca students vary from state and national averages.

I've mentioned green construction in Dryden here a few times (1 2 3), and Cooperative Extension, the Ithaca Green Building Alliance, and Sustainable Tompkins will be having a workshop on "Green Building Design" on Tuesday, January 18th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at 615 Willow Avenue (map).

At the state level, the Senate decided not to try to overturn Pataki's budget vetoes. I believe, though I'm not sure, that the funds for a TC3 expansion were in there.

On a similar subject, the Journal's editorial hopes the state legislature can do better in 2005 than it did in 2004.
