ACTION ITEM

SUBJECT

Reorganization Plan

RATIONALE

During the many first semester visits with staff, parents and students, staff noted four areas of concern that were consistent across the division:

·        Additional support for current technology and future technology initiatives;

·        An alternative education program that broadened the scope of the program;

·        Connection with families and pre-school programs before children enter kindergarten; and

·        Improved Communication.

From that information, the administrative team developed four goals.  The goals are:

·        Provide additional support to the technology department;

·        Develop a robust alternative education program to house 6th – 12th grade students that supports increased innovation for each student, enhances student support services, and strengthens accountability for results;

·        Make connections with the pre – school programs; and

·        Clearly define central office personnel responsibilities and roles to improve communication.

The reorganization plan includes the

·        Creating a department of technology;

·        Developing a robust alternative education program;

·        Connecting the YMCA early childhood programs with Mountain View Elementary School; and

·        Realignment of Central office personnel responsibilities.  

Please see the attached plan for details.
