Goings on in Olympia

Right now, the Governor's Government Management, Accountability and Performance group is discussing the state's use of federal Recovery Act stimulus dollars.

At 10, Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn will discuss the latest statewide High School Proficiency Exam (HPSE) scores. This is the test approved last year to replace the WASL.

Also meeting at 10 is the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Committee (JLARC). Of ongoing interest will be their final report about school district cost and size. The committee will also discuss what looks to be an interesting preliminary report on the Department of Early Learning, a relatively new agency devoted entirely to increasing quality and access to early learning for all the children in our state.

Tune in to TVW to watch it all. We'll provide an update on Dorn's report later today.
