6.C. Approval of Student Handbook Modifications - Action Item
Description:  After meeting with FUSD staff this fall, we felt we could make modifications to our student handbook for Central Program students that would address some recurring issues when students drop or obtain less than a "C" in a class. Essentially, this modification would allow a student to drop/fail a class one time during their Central Program experience. If the class is a pre-requisite, they are required to take the class at their own expense at a future date to maintain eligibility. The request would be reviewed by a panel of one CAVIAT and two FUSD representatives. Approval will allow us to address about 12 separate situations that are currently under review. A copy of the proposed language is included for your perusal. The changes are on pp. 3 and 5 and are highlighted in grey.
6.D. Consideration to join the Pima JTED Curriculum Consortium- Action Item
Description:  On several occasions we have discussed the prospect of joining this Statewide effort and just today I have learned of an opportunity to solve part of the training component by sending some of our folks to the regional training in Prescott (not Tucson where it's customarily offered) .  We project the cost to be under $15 K for access to all of the training materials available.  The other JTED's who have joined report that this has been the single most helpful program to elevate instruction and State Assessment test scores that they have found.  There's a lot of information that I can share at the Board meeting and answer questions.  I believe Mr. Treece will want to weigh in as well.
7. CALENDAR OF EVENTS
The next Regular Board Meeting is scheduled for Friday, February 8, 2013 at 9 a.m. via teleconference.
