Meeting Agenda Topics
The meeting agenda topics include:
13.1 - Supporting Strong Learning Communities in every Region, the Board will be asked to authorize the use of ESSER funds to enter into a service agreement with Curriculum Associates, Inc. This will provide coaching and support for principals and teachers, as they utilize data to identify priority needs and action steps to ensure students are accelerating and recovering their unfinished learning gaps due to the pandemic.
13.5 - Supporting a Whole-Child Focus and Board Goal One: Strengthen Reading Proficiency, the Board will be asked to authorize the administration to enter into an agreement with American Program Bureau Inc. This will provide books and author visits to schools, increasing students’ access to print and literacy experiences.
15.1 - Supporting Authentic Engagement and Equitable Opportunities for All, the Board will be asked to authorize the administration to enter into a purchase agreement with Yext Inc. The Yext search platform, found on the District website, allows for a more comprehensive user experience to ensure the CCS community can efficiently find what it needs.
19.2 - Supporting Strong Learning Communities and Equitable Opportunities for All, the Board will be asked to authorize the administration to enter into an agreement with Education Resource Strategies, Inc.
