  1. I print and save any grades and any descriptions of classes and teacher info (for my course descriptions). That’s it. My dd does have papers she’s written on her computer, but I don’t print graded versions.
  2. I don’t get that comment? In my family, who is all geographically local, we have one kid who is in the top 1%, one who is in the top 20% and 3 who are well below the 50th percentile. How does this reveal our economic background, which is the same? Honestly, I’d like to believe it is just about the CB staying relevant, but it sounds like the information they provided actually had a substantial impact on outcomes last year at the 50 schools that used it.
  3. I just realized in my earlier post that I called it a diversity score (accidentally) instead of an adversity score, lol. I just saw where someone else did that on CC. It’s easy to do.
  4. Yes, I didn’t read the original article carefully enough, but have since seen that as well. Honestly, the whole thing sickens me.
  5. I *think* this is where we are crossing wires — when you apply to college, many colleges let you just input (self-report) your SAT score without submitting the original report from the CB. Then, if you are accepted and decide to go to the school, you then send the official report. So, I was wondering how this diversity score would be seen before admissions by colleges if students would not be self-reporting it (since they won’t even know what it is). I agree, though, that colleges already have the data that is used to generate the adversity score. I am also sure that if they want access to the score generated by the CB, they will get it.
  6. Lial’s is what I used with my ds for algebra 2 and I was very happy with it, but it doesn’t have any trig in it either. 🙂 That was fine for us, though. He covered trig in precalculus. Sorry, OP. Hopefully, someone else has the answer.
  7. I wonder if it was the chapters on trigonometry? It seems like trig is now often included in algebra 2 but I don’t see any in TT alg 2. If so, Khan Academy has lessons on trigonometry if you wanted to cover that material.
  8. Well, I was assuming the adversity score would be sent with the official score after the student has already been admitted. So, at least for now, the score wouldn’t play into admissions. Or, am I missing something? According to this article: “The purpose is to get to race without using race,” Anthony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, told the Journal. The use of an adversity score did in fact lead to greater racial diversity in the case of Florida State University, which successfully increased its non-white enrollment from 37 percent to 42 percent among its incoming freshman class. “If I am going to make room for more of the [poor and minority] students we want to admit and I have a finite number of spaces, then someone has to suffer and that will be privileged kids on the bubble,” John Barnhill, assistant vice president for academic affairs at Florida State University, told the Journal.
  9. I wonder if this will put an end to self reporting scores? Or, am I mistaken and official SAT scores have to generally be sent before admissions decisions are made? I know AP scores are self-reported at most schools.
  10. Another very simple meal that I make that everyone enjoys is boneless country style ribs. They go on sale often. I cook them in the oven covered with foil at 325. Then I uncover and squirt on a bunch of gf bbq and cook for another 20 minutes. You could serve with rice or tater tots. Oh, and Perdue makes gf chicken tenders that my ds really likes. I get the regular Perdue tenders for my dd and the gf ones for my ds. Sometimes I will make chicken tenders with tater tots or fries for a quick meal. You can buy Chick-fil-A sauce by the tub for a couple of dollars and, if I have that, my kids are pretty excited about it.
  11. Amy’s makes a roasted veggie pizza without cheese that always looked interesting to me, but I’ve never tried it.
  12. My dd has had issues with dairy, but tolerates goat dairy without any problem. I buy her mozzarella cheese made with goat’s milk at the HFS and make pizza with a store bought pizza crust or bagel. My dh and dd enjoy Trader Joe’s orange chicken. It is $5 a bag and feeds them both. Sometimes I make that for them with some rice and then put in a gf pizza for my ds. I have an old Daiya pizza in my freezer that I need to toss because no one is ever going to eat it. Dairy is the hardest thing to avoid, imo.
  13. My ds is starting work at a car wash this week because he’s heard the pay winds up being about $18/hour once tips are included and they are offering him regular hours. What about waiting tables in a nice restaurant where tips should be good? The next town over from us was recently advertising for summer clerks at the library and paying $15/hour, so check your town and county employment websites. Is he good with children? Some people need full time childcare over the summer and will pay well for it. Though I’ve noticed people will pay even better for pet sitting/walking, lol. You can find childcare and pet sitting jobs on and maybe would be better, but I’ve never tried it, I was encouraging my nephew and my dd to make flyers for lawn mowing services. I suspect that would be pretty lucrative in my area. Oh, and one of my son’s friends works for a junk removal business. He is allowed to keep anything the owners ask to have removed and he adds quite a bit to his income by selling other people’s junk on eBay.
