Pomona High School para educator Mary Fran Dedin (cq, left) tries to comfort special needs student Brittany Hight (cq, right), an 18 year-old senior, during a Basic Math class at the school. Hight has Down's Syndrome and some other medical complications as well. The CSAP scores of the special needs students are included in the school's overall grade and many of the special needs teachers feel their scores should be excluded because many of the students will never be able to attain even a partially proficient score on the CSAPs. A task force of eight retired school teachers and administrators is spending a week at Pomona High School observing, talking with teachers, students and parents and making recommendations on how to raise CSAP scores to make sure the school is meeting the nationwide "No Child Left Behind" standard. If the school fails to raise its CSAP scores this next time around it will most likely lose its accreditation. (MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) CQ Mary Fran Dedin and Brittany Hight
