Description:  Previously, we've not been adopting policies that dealt specifically with certified teachers and policies that relate to the classroom/campus environment.  However, with the advent of expanding central programs on member district sites and privately owned facilities, we will need to begin adding related policies.

There are a couple of included policies that address graduation requirements that do not pertain to our mission but for purposes of the first reading, we have left them on the agenda.  By the next meeting, I'll have a recommendation for each policy to be considered for formal adoption.
6.A. First Reading of Policies – Action Item
GCO- Evaluation of Professional Staff Members
IKF- Graduation Requirements
JFABC- Admission of Transfer Students
JLCCA- Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infections
KHC- Distribution/Posting of Promotional Materials
6.B. CAVIAT and Common Core Assistance to Satellites – Discussion Item Only
Description:  Several Board Members have requested additional information with regard to the Common Core Assistance to Satellites.  Much of this will come directly from the Governor's Office and ADE and will likely be facilitated thru training offered by the County School Superintendent's Office in each county.  However, CAVIAT is poised to assist in some important ways by virtue of our affiliation with the Pima County JTED Curriculum Project.  I've asked Curt Burtelsen, who has led the initiative since the beginning if he would be willing to attend our April Board meeting and elaborate on the potential the project has for improving instruction AND to assist member districts with Common Core requirements.  He was excited about the interest our Board has expressed and although he can not make it on April 10th, he believes a member of his steering committee will be available to do so.  It will afford everyone with an opportunity to ask questions and get detailed information from those who are the top experts in this area.
6.C. Consideration to host ASBA County Workshop on Thursday, October 17, 2013- Action Item
The next Regular Board Meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2013 at 12 p.m. in Grand Canyon at the Grand Canyon School.
