SAC President Millie led the first meeting for 2012-2013, for the third year focusing on "Becoming a Leader of Learners."
Learning Targets for 2012-13: TPEP/Frameworks, Common Core, Advocacy
Our Problem of Practice: What leadership practices will accelerate the success of students in NCW as we enhance our skills as Leader of Learners and a Leader of Leaders?
Success Criteria: the SAC agenda will reflect our Problem of Practice:
Collaboration and Sharing are part of our regular agendas
We will share professional development and other resources across the region
We will "leverage" our SAC learning with sub-regional meetings
We provide mutual support for topics as they become a priority
Our SAC Theory of Action:IF we provide district leaders with key information on TPEP, CCSS and Advocacy, strategies for implementation, and practical methods to collaborate and assess progress, THEN our district leaders will greatly enhance their districts' success.
Learning targets for the meeting were:
Develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core Implementation and develop a clear action plan for implementation and/or messaging in my district
Be able to describe the current status of the TPEP/RIG work underway in our region and how it will impact the work of my district for 2012-13
Greta Bornemann, Director of Teaching & Learning Mathematics at OSPI, was the featured speaker and brought an update on Common Core Standards, presenting information on "As a Superintendent, what do I need to know to lead this initiative?"
Shanna Brooks, Andrew Hickman and Machelle LaLanne from the ESD shared information about alignment of MLA Trainings/Activities with CCSS, and Superintendent Rich McBride and Assistant Superintendent Cindy Duncan reported on TPEP/RIG I & II/Instructional Frameworks.
New superintendents attending their first SAC meeting were Cora Nordby, Mansfield School District, and Ismael Vivanco, Palisades School District.
