Council to Improve Classroom Conditions Recommendation on Attendance


NOTE: The following is a news release from the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions.

The Council to Improve Classroom Conditions finished three days of meetings today, April 20.

The council made the following recommendations with regards to attendance:
— request the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to release the draft policy immediately, to gather and return feedback to the council before the May 17 meetings, to communicate the policy to schools in June, and to take effect in September
— ask principals to share the policy with staff and school advisory councils and encourage feedback to council members or the department’s website
— request the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and school boards to bring forward research and best practices on outreach workers or other supports and accountability measures to increase attendance. This would support discussion around the potential of a pilot project.

The council will meet again on April 26 to finalize its initial report. That report, which is to be submitted by April 28, will contain additional recommendations from this week’s meetings. Topics discussed this week include Individual Program Plans, TIENET, PowerSchool, class sizes, assessment, and evaluation.
