Agenda Item: VIII.B.

Consider/Approve Director's Participation in CEO Professional Development Program

Background Information :

Annually, the Board must approve its Director’s participation in the State’s Executive Development Program for Public School Leaders, Component III – CEO Leadership Institutes. This program consists of ten (10) days of meetings each fiscal year for which the State, in the past, paid the Director a $1,000 supplement ($100 per meeting). According to State Department personnel, the Commissioner of Education has not made a determination as to whether this supplement will be paid for the 2017 – 2018 Fiscal Year. Regardless of the decision, no financial obligation will attach to the Board’s approval of its Director’s participation in this professional development program.

Staff Recommendation:

Professional development opportunities are extremely important for staying informed on the latest trends and developments in public education. I would appreciate the Board's approval of my participation.
