Notes on AWSP Board Meeting

Traditionally, the AWSP Board meets in June the Saturday prior to the Summer Conference; this year was no different. Today's board meeting saw the addition of new members, including Cle Elum-Roslyn High Principal Boyd Keyser and Serene Lake Elementary Principal Karen Reid. The board also thanked Lydia Hawk Elementary Principal Paula Quinn for her service to the board as the Association's past president.

Unlike our component board meetings, where elementary, middle and high school principals and assistant principals meet to share best practices, the AWSP board is largely a business meeting. Budgets are reviewed and reports are given on each of the Association's strategic plan goal areas.

Here are some of the more compelling, non-business -related points from today's meeting:
  • AWSP passed a resolution in support of the simple majority referendum on the 2007 fall ballot.( Check back for actual text.)
  • State Board of Education Member Amy Bragdon reported that the SBE is considering adding a high school graduation credit in tribal history. AWSP is appointing a committee to review this proposal.
  • AWSP will continue researching the new NAESP E-Knowledege Portal as a member benefit.
