Dear GCPS Community,
The beginning of the 2014-15 school year marks the third year for the division’s Instructional Council. The Council was formed in September 2012 in an effort to serve in an advisory capacity to the school division on matters related to instructional programming and student learning.
By design, the Instructional Council has been comprised of a broad range of stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members.
When the Council first began meeting, the team’s discussion had influence on the school division’s strategic planning process. Since then, our School Board adopted a formal strategic plan (December 2013), and while the Council’s focus remains the same (instructional programming and student learning), the team’s impact has shifted to prioritization, implementation, and reflection.
We have a core team of about ten Instructional Council members who have been together since 2012 – and we’d like to expand the team to between 15 and 20. Generally, we meet in the evening (6:00-7:00PM), quarterly.
If you would like to be considered for membership to the Instructional Council for the 2014-15 school year, please contact Stephen Geyer, Assistant Superintendent of Instruction by Friday, October 3: email@example.com | (804) 556-5609, direct office.
