I am looking for a standardized high school math placement exam that I can give to our International applicants in their home country before they arrive in the US. We are trying to determine their math placement before they arrive at our school.

Our school board is discussing/exploring the possibility of having armed school sentries—school personnel who are armed, but not openly, and without the identity of the armed personnel openly known. There are some people who are very much in favor of this and others very much opposed.

I am looking for a better resource for Bibles to use with our international students. I like them to have a parallel translation or "bilingual" Bible so that they can study the Scriptures in English and in their native language.
For nearly 50 years this nation has embarked on a concerted effort to educate children with a particular concentration on poor children, children of color, and children who are educationally and socially disadvantaged. These children are summarily referred to as educationally disenfranchised. The nation has spared little expense in its endeavor to address the educational plight of this student population.
You’ve made a fantastic, eternity-impacting decision by enrolling your kids in a Christian school. But how do you maximize your investment? I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas) to outline a few deliberate actions you can take to do so this school year. —Dan
The start of the school year is akin to New Year’s Day: it’s a new beginning, and you have no idea what the days ahead will bring. For that reason, it’s a great time to re-center on God. I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), to address some ideas on keeping a godly perspective this year. —Dan
Christian schools are most effective when they partner with parents in discipling their children. In Christian School Comment 48.8, Dr. Larry Taylor shared the first part of his model for deliberately training children. I encourage you to read it if you haven’t, and to enjoy this second part. —Dan
We highly recommend these resources from the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. The foundation was founded in 1996 by Milton and Rose D. Friedman to advance a system of K-12 education in which all parents regardless of race, origin, or family income are free to choose a learning environment that is best for their children.

*BOSS Tools were developed with A.C.E. Educators in mind. Topics were chosen to assist administrators and teachers with school improvement and student academic success. They are BOSS Tools because they provide a Basic Overview on topics, while additionally giving you the tools to conduct a Self-Assessment then administer Self-Implimentation for resultant change in your school.
Best Practices: Effective A.C.E. Schools are effective schools with equipped staff and enriched students.
Student Academic Assimilation: How to Effectively Assimilate Low-Performing Students into a Rigorous Academic Program
The BOSS Literacy Tool: Designed to enable educators with the "how" of teaching literacy to A.C.E. students.
