CCES (Cuyahoga County Educators Summit) –First meeting was January 23, 2020.
DISCIPLINE (SCOC): Met February 5, 2019. According to the district since referrals are down then the behaviors in schools must be better. We let them know their logic is faulty – members are not writing as many referrals because no one has time to go through all the hoops that are now required – so behaviors are probably worse.
ARC (Appraisal Review Committee): The first ARC meeting was held September 24. The new OTES 2.0 was discussed that will be implemented statewide next year. We are gathering as much information on the changes as it becomes available. The November 12 was cancelled since nothing new has come out about the pilots running this year throughout the state. Next meeting January 14, 2020.
CALENDAR COMMITTEE: Recommendations were sent to the board for the 2020-2022 calendars. No major shifts except that both years include Easter Monday as a day off.
