Council of Local Presidents

Judy Park from the State Office of Education did a presentation on SMARTER Balanced Assessment which will assess the Common Core and will be implemented in the 2014-2015 school year. 

Kory Holdaway, UEA Government Relations Director, discussed the upcoming Legislative Sesison.  You can see a preview of hot issues at the link.  There are several issues that educators will need to monitor and respond to.  As members, you may receive e-mails throughout the session from UEA President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh.  Please read them so you know what is happening on the hill and so you can act if necessary.

Sara Jones, UEA Director of Educational Excellence, shared the results of a survey on alternative pay structures. 

There was a lot of information presented at this meeting.  I believe these three items of the most interest and relevance to you right now.
