A.

Adoption of the Policy Agenda and Approval of the Minutes of August 14, 2013, Policy and Instruction Committee Meeting – Kathy Korte motioned for approval of the agenda and minutes.  Steven Michael Quezada seconded the motion.  All were in favor.

II.

Family and Community Engagement Procedural Directive – Dr. Peercy asked Ms. Carrie Menapace to review the crosswalk/table of information pertaining to the procedural directive, which had been posted on the APS website.  Ms. Menapace went over what was done and said it was in a draft form in order to get a conversation started and/or get feedback.  The feedback received from the community on line was used to do the crosswalk.  She explained what a procedural directive was, parameters  for administration to carry out board policies.  She gave the history of this procedural directive.  Three years ago Families United created the procedural directive and sent it to the superintendent.  Community forums were held from which four common themes were produced:  1) Safe and welcoming environments, 2) Strengthening relationships, 3) Expanding communication and 4) Equitable and effective systems.  She went over the changes in the directive that were a direct result of the comments received when the procedural directive was posted on the APS website.  Ms. Menapace went over the procedural directive and all the changes.  Mr. Brooks indicated they already had met with Families United and Mr. Flores of the Latino group.  Each board member thanked all for their hard work on this, asked questions, commented and gave some suggestions on wording, etc.  Mr. Brooks said they would take the suggestions from the last few days, make changes, review it and let the board review it again.

III.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) Update – Jami Jacobson, executive director of curriculum and instruction, began by saying the goal of the presentation this evening was to present the program as it is now and how it had changed.  She introduced Sheryl Williams, instructional coordinator for the career and technical education unit in the curriculum and instruction department.  Ms. Williams went over the structure and explained what career and technical education was.  The program’s name had been changed from Vocation Education to Career and Technical Education.  The reason was that the focus had changed; it now included a wider scope and inclusion.  She went over the elements of a quality CTE program.  Ms. Williams ask for questions.

Dr. Peercy stated he appreciated the program and was in support of this type of experiential learning.  Board members commented on the program and asked questions about: how many students participated; where the different programs were located; how students are tracked after certification and how many were in mentorship and/or internships.  Discussion followed about giving students more options and opportunities.
