IACTE - REPA II Next Steps

IACTE Colleagues –

Attached are the notes from our November 2nd meeting at Ball State and information with respect to Indiana State Board of Education Members.  Thanks to Michael Slavkin and Jonathan Dee for taking notes in my absence.  Thanks also to all the Executive Committee members who stepped up and assumed management and facilitation for what I have heard was a great meeting.

Now is the time to begin writing and communicating re: REPA II; please refer to the notes from the November 2nd meeting.  Currently, it is our best information that a revised version of REPA II will be on the agenda for approval at the State Board of Education meeting on December 5th.  At this time, the revisions have not been made public, but we have been advised that modifications have been made to the original version based on over 700 written comments received, in addition to the public hearing.  It is important that the Board of Education members continue to know of the concerns surrounding the REPA II proposals.
