Dave Wilmes, a CAVIAT board member, explained to the board that Flagstaff Unified School District is joining the consortium, which includes Page and school districts in Fredonia, Williams and Grand Canyon.Each district must approve the change, Wilmes said, and then the state must approve the election change.
Currently, Page has two seats on the board, while Fredonia, Williams and Grand Canyon each have one.Page would get a third seat, and Flagstaff would get three seats.In order to have a quorum, the board members present must include one of the members from the "minority districts," Wilmes said.He noted that the provision is in place to keep larger school districts from spending CAVIAT money on their own projects and shut out smaller districts.
"The system we have in place now, one of the concerns is that we maintain the possibility of Native Americans being elected to the board," Wilmes said.

PAGE - Numbers were flying all over the place as Page Unified School District data coordinator Dave Wilmes tried to explain the district's adequate yearly progress and AIMS data to the PUSD governing board on Sept. 20.
That number came up as Wilmes was explaining how the special-education data almost resulted in Page High School not earning AYP for the 2004-05 school year.When Tsosie asked Wilmes how many special education students were at the high school, the data coordinator replied that there were 200 students who were identified as "special ed" out of an enrollment of approximately 1,100.
Wilmes said that students' individual education plans help to determine if they have special learning needs.He also cited psychological tests and evidence of a definite disability.
"It may be speech difficulties, hearing difficulties, vision difficulties.But it could also be learning difficulties," Wilmes said, noting that there are 12 different classifications for special ed.
"Yes, but it can also be based on tests," Wilmes replied.
Wilmes said that it has to be a team of faculty members that determines a student's classification.
"I think it's normal given our economic population," Wilmes said.
According to Dave Wilmes, ..., 29 Oct 2008 [cached]
According to Dave Wilmes, Page Unified School District's program evaluator, the district noticed the inaccuracies, and appealed the findings on Sept. 18. After not hearing back on its appeal, the district wrongly assumed it had been denied.
Wilmes had attempted to submit the appeal using a new computer system implemented by ADE. The Web-based system for some reason would not accept Page's appeal when Wilmes tried to submit it though.
"I have no idea why their system blocked my submission," Wilmes said.
After realizing the appeal was not going through, Wilmes e-mailed the appeal to ADE.
According to Wilmes, ADE processed part of the appeal in September, because the data provided to Wilmes by the state changed in regards to the 24 previously tested students. Somehow though, ADE did not look at the part of the appeal dealing with untested home-school students.
"The part about the home-school kids they never looked at, because they put the e-mail someplace," Wilmes said.
On Oct. 23, Franciosi informed Page High School Principal Perry Berry and Wilmes through e-mails that the school's appeal was accepted and it had achieved AYP.
Wilmes said he was not surprised the mistakes had happened on the ADE side of things, though. He specifically pointed out the department is trying to do things with its computer system it does not have the capabilities to do. Wilmes was also upset that the district had to even appeal the 24 students who had previously taken the test.
"They have test scores, they know who took the test before," Wilmes said. "Why do I have to appeal our kids that they have the scores for?"
Wilmes pointed out the hypocrisy in having to take data provided by the ADE to show the ADE which kids it should not count against the school's AYP score. Wilmes also wondered how many schools in the state might have faced similar issues, but don't have the resources or connections to track it down.
"What about schools that don't have a superintendent capable of calling the county superintendent, who happens to be on the state board of education?" Wilmes said.
PUSD data coordinator Dave ..., 7 Nov 2007 [cached]
PUSD data coordinator Dave Wilmes said the way the district compiles the data is that every student who enters a school in the state of Arizona is assigned a state student number called a Student Accountability Information System number.
"We are able to track kids that come from other schools, and if we have kids that go to other schools, the state tracks them," he said.
Any student that goes into or is transferred into a school during the school year is added into the cohort with other students, Wilmes said.
For instance, if there is a freshman student that is added to the 2011 cohort, the student remains in the cohort, even if he or she transfers to another school.Even if PUSD gets a new student in his or her second year of high school, he or she is still in the cohort, Wilmes said.
The only way to get out of the system would be to transfer to another school, Wilmes said.
"We get a pretty accurate number of how many kids come through our system and how many kids have graduated, and we can get an accurate graduation rate and an accurate dropout rate," he said.
Along with Berry, Wilmes said the data presented by Johns Hopkins is also flawed.
