Division Stakeholder Committees have been created to assist divisions in obtaining input and feedback on tasks assigned to divisions by Cabinet. The Committees are recommending bodies to their respective divisions and ultimately Cabinet. The Committees will use a consultative decision making process in formulating recommendations to their respective division and Cabinet.
Michael Bond, Executive Director of Human Resources & Title I opened the meeting by welcoming members and reviewing the agenda for the meeting. It was noted attendance was down due to many NCSD schools participating in parent-teacher conferences.
The first action item on the agenda was to review feedback from organizations represented by committee members in relation to the Stakeholder Satisfaction Strategic Improvement Survey. Doreen McGlade presented feedback gained from representatives of NCEA and SEIO representative, Robert Minor, shared feedback from his constituents.
