Teacher Quality Minutes March 20, 2008

Lewis Central
Teacher Quality Committee
ERC--Official Meeting Minutes
March 20, 2008

• The meeting was called to order by Dave Black at 4:50 p.m.

• Present: Kim Muta, Jeanne Bartholow, Linda Hahn, Al Lorenz, Dave Black, Barb Grell, Kent Stopak, and Mark Schweer.

• Absent: Tom McLaughlin, Barb Motes, Marilyn Wandersee, Pat Thomas, Laurie Thies, Chuck Story, Kim Jones, and Sean Dunphy.

• Kim Muta moved that the minutes from the March 12, 2008 meeting be approved. Kent Stopak seconded the motion. A voice vote was taken and the minutes were approved.

• Discussion revolved around the “model evidence” that a teacher might use to demonstrate support of the standards and criteria. The “model evidence” was gleaned from ISEA documents, the evaluation documents from Cedar Rapids, and from what was already being used in buildings throughout the district. A suggestion was made that an accompanying cover sheet would be helpful. This will appear as an agenda item for the April 17 meeting.

• The next meeting is scheduled for April 17 at 4:30 p.m. In addition to the item mentioned previously, the 3rd group (special teachers, i.e., counselors, nurses, etc) will present.

• Meeting adjourned at 5:10 p.m.
