The achievement gap between black and white students begins in third grade in the district, according to state standardized test scores. She said Mr. Hamlet and his pick for chief academic officer, Seema Ramji, are beginning to look at those inconsistencies, and the board will explore what types of support [we can] give schools to help narrow that gap. The board, she said, also should focus on monitoring the superintendent in terms of him reaching . . . goals that he set for himself and that we set for him; rolling out the community schools model in at least one school as early as next semester; and strengthening the districts career and technical education offerings. Ms. Holleys first year as president was marked by some tension. Some criticized the boards hiring of a consulting firm to assist the districts superintendent search although it had only done it once before.

Researchers analyzed data from the Harvard Athlete Initiative, an ongoing research program to address issues relevant to athlete health and exercise physiology. For this study, researchers enrolled first-year athletes to capture their initial season of college-level participation. The study period began at the time of enrollment and lasted for the entire football season–about 90 days. Of 190 eligible football participants enrolled between 2008 and 2014, 87 were included in the study cohort. Athletes who missed more than three days of training for any reason or had echocardiographic images unsuitable for analysis were excluded. The final cohort included 30 linemen and 57 non-linemen. Prior to the season, 57 percent of linemen and 51 percent of non-linemen met the criteria for pre-hypertension. However, after the season 90 percent of linemen met the criteria for pre-hypertension or Stage 1 hypertension while only 49 percent of non-linemen, similar to the preseason, had elevated blood pressure. These changes in blood pressure, particularly among athletes who played at the lineman field positions, were accompanied by thickening of the heart walls and a mild but significant decline in contractile function.
