Board Briefs: Votes Coming on Final Teacher's Contract Document, RTI Coordinator
Here's a look at items that are expected to be on the Grayslake District 46 Board agenda in March.
The Grayslake District 46 Board hopes to approve the finalized 2012-14 teacher's contract at its next meeting.
The final document wasn't ready for the board's Feb. 20 meeting.
"It's not finished yet," said Board President Ray Millington. "It should be done by the next meeting."
The board voted unanimously Feb. 6 to approve the tentative agreement between the district and the teacher's union. Board Secretary Sue Facklam noted at that meeting that when the board votes on the final document, the contents will not change.
Curriculum/Response to Intervention Coordinator
Also at the next meeting, the board may vote on whether to hire a coordinator for curriculum and Response to Intervention.
Superintendent Ellen Correll explained that the district needs someone to handle a variety of tasks, including looking at assessments, looking at writing standards in kindergarten through eighth grade, examining social studies and coordinating communication amongst the buildings so there is consistency.
"This is a position I feel very strongly that you need to have in the district," said Correll. "I would ask the board to consider it. It is in our budget."
