IACTE 2016-2017 Meeting Dates
A new academic year has arrived! I do hope that everyone had the opportunity to enjoy the summer and some relaxation. The Executive Committee has worked over the summer to plan another year of informative meetings. The tentative set of topics is noted below. The schedule for our meetings this year is:
IACTE Colleagues –
We had a most informative meeting at the University of Indianapolis on Friday, September 23rd. Thanks to all of you who attended and contributed to the discussion. For those who could not make it, we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Attached are the meeting notes.
IACTE Executive Secretary
IACTE Colleagues –
Another academic year has begun! I do hope that the start of the semester is calming down, and that you are ready to see your colleagues from across the state. The Executive Committee has put together the agenda for our first meeting of the new school year. It is focused on the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the allowable use of associated funds. Participating in the meeting will be Deb Koolbeck, the AACTE Government Relations Director and representatives from the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). Invitations also are being extended to our school partners in the state, including representatives from the teachers, principals, superintendents, and school board associations. We expect to have a rich discussion.
Attached are two documents for you to review prior to the meeting. These documents -- ESSA Allowable Use of Funds and Title II Overview -- will also be utilized during the afternoon table discussions. Each member is asked to bring 1-2 innovative ideas that you would to share that your institution has participated in or would like to participate in if funding were available, including any ideas that have involved partner school districts.
The meeting details are below.
