The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education
Special Meeting: Mid-Year Review on Board's Priorities and Progress & Follow-up to the Inspector General's Report
|To:||Members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education|
|From:||Mitchell D. Chester, Ed. D., Commissioner|
|Date:||January 15, 2010|
We have two topics for discussion at our special meeting on Monday evening, January 26: a mid-year review of the Board's priorities and progress with a focus on educator effectiveness initiatives, and follow-up to the Inspector General's report.
The mid-year review will enable the Board to revisit and continue its discussion from the August 2009 retreat at Bridgewater State College on priorities, processes, and time allocation. In addition, Associate Commissioner David Haselkorn will update the Board on educator effectiveness initiatives, which the Board has identified as one of its priorities.
The Board will also discuss the Inspector General's report on Gloucester Community Arts Charter School and the actions we are taking to ensure that our charter authorizing process is consistent with law, including the newly amended charter school statute.
