On May 23 the Board will receive a briefing from the Director of IES and staff on its activities and progress reports on projects underway since January 2007.
On May 24 the Board will discuss issues related to the reauthorization of the Education Sciences Reform Act and its pending contract to evaluate the effectiveness of the IES in carrying out its priorities and mission.
