Directors’ Annual Letter

The Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative continued its' progressive growth through 2011. The
year was a year of transition in leadership due to the retirement of the director and assistant director.
As the new leadership of the Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative, Ms. Leasha Hayes, our new
assistant director / TCC, and myself are committed to continuing to provide the wonderful programs
that the co-op has always provided while adjusting some of those programs to meet the ever changing
needs of the 16 school districts that we serve. The Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative will
continue to evolve and grow programs that are necessary to provide quality services to our school
districts. We have begun the daunting task of delivering support for the implementation of the common
core curriculum and the newly required teacher evaluation system. Our Board members are very active
in their service to the cooperative and are providing a very sound shared vision for the cooperative.

The 2010-2011 annual report prepared by the staff of the Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative
reflects information on the programs and grants conducted through the co-op for our 16 school districts
and collaborative partners. The Wilbur D. Mills Cooperative has 55 employees total, 35 of these are
housed in the three co-op owned buildings in Beebe, 20 of these employees are housed in schools or
preschools, and we run 4 state programs. The Arkansas Department of Education Base Funding to the
co-op is $408,618 and the total budget is approximately $5.3 million.

One of the main purposes of the co-op is to be effective and efficient in the administration of programs
for the schools. As a result, our 16 school districts or a portion of these school districts, often share joint
programs. Listed below are examples of these shared programs:

        *APSCN field support                               *Media services
        *Distance Learning Coordinator and programs        *Medicaid billing services
        *Early Childhood Special Education program         *Psychological services
        *Gifted and Talented Coordinator                   *School health nurse
        *HIPPY program                                     *Science Specialist
        *LEA Special Education Supervisor                  *Teacher Center services
        *CTE Coordinator                                   *Perkins consortium
        *Literacy-Science Specialist                       *Literacy Specialist
        *Math Specialist                                   *Technology services
        *Professional Development programs

The co-ops of Arkansas have served as the implementation support agents for new state initiatives. The
Wilbur D. Mills Cooperative has provided the extensive professional development and capacity building
necessary to implement the state initiatives. We plan to continue to effectively provide support for the
common core curriculum and the new teacher evaluation system. The mission of the Wilbur D. Mills
Education Service Cooperative is to support and serve our school districts as they strive to provide a high
quality education to their students. We will strive to provide these services in the most effective and
efficient manner possible. The staff of the Wilbur D. Mill Cooperative looks forward to the challenges of
the upcoming year. We will strive to provide quality services to each of our school districts.

VI. ANECDOTAL REPORTS

Please attach three or four descriptions of activities which demonstrate partnerships, agreements or

WDMESC Math Leadership Council
The Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative Math Leadership Council was developed to improve
the teaching and learning process in mathematics in K-12. All 16 of our districts participated along with
our STEM center math specialist in this project. Each district selected a math leader to attend monthly
training/collaborating work sessions in math content, curriculum alignment, assessment and
instructional process delivery. The math coach and STEM center math specialist developed math
capacity in the local school districts through these work sessions. Dr. Linda Griffith of U.C.A. provided
training during the year. Our focus this year has been on the Common Core State Standards. This was
the first year for the formalized monthly work sessions, but we plan to continue the professional
development council as we believe that building capacity at the local school level is the most progressive
way to ensure all students have access to appropriate curriculum and instruction.


WDMESC Literacy Leadership Council
The Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative Literacy Leadership Council was developed to
improve the teaching and learning process in literacy in K-12. All 16 of our districts participated along
with our STEM center science specialist in this project. Each district selected a literacy leader to attend
monthly training/collaborating work sessions in literacy content, curriculum alignment, assessment and
instructional process delivery. The literacy coaches and STEM center science specialist developed
capacity in the local school districts through these work sessions. Leading Literacy/Curriculum Directors
from our participating districts led sessions throughout the year. The focus this year has been Common
Core State Standards and the development of lessons to assist the K-2 teachers in our state. WDMESC
participated in a state wide project of lesson development for literacy with integrated curriculum
components. This was the first year to have the formalized professional development group with its
capacity building focus. However, the literacy meetings will continue. We believe that building capacity
is crucial to providing appropriate learning experiences for all our students.


WDMESC Assessing Impact
The Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative director, specialists, teacher center coordinator and
school improvement supervisor participated with five of our districts in the process of using data to
assess the impact of school policies, procedures and professional development. Members of the SPDG
team also participated with the cooperative’s team and the districts in determining the factors that both
negatively and positively affect student success. Academic and behavioral outcomes were analyzed. The
districts were able to make decisions to change or enrich policies, procedures and professional
development based upon the work completed in the project. We believe that this project will improve
the districts’ offerings for improvement in personnel development and provide more access to the
curriculum and positive instruction for students. This process will continue for those districts in the
WDMESC area who wish to engage with us.

Goal:
The goal of Career and Technical Education is to prepare students to enter the workforce or to enter
into post-secondary education. It is our goal to train our teachers in the most current technology and
bring that technology to our students so that we can best prepare them for the future ahead of them.
We use our Perkins indicators as a guide to determine where to provide additional training for teachers
and students.

Program Summary:
The coordinator for the Wilbur D Mills Consortium is required to write the annual Perkins Grant and to
expend the grant monies throughout the member districts. This is done through pre approved projects
approved in the grant. The coordinator is also responsible for handling the reports required by the
program and the professional development as needed.

Major Highlights of the Year:
This year our consortium concentrated on Technical Skill Attainment. The consortium is currently in an
improvement plan for this accountability measure. The teachers had extensive time during the summer
to review the assessment overviews and to discuss with other teachers in their field how to best teach
objectives and request additional materials that were needed. Though the consortia did see an
improvement in the EOC scores, we are currently in year 2 of the improvement plan.

Goal:
The goal of the Early Childhood Special Education Program is to identify and serve children with
disabilities, ages 3 through 5, by providing speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy,
and/or teacher- facilitated direct instruction.

Program Summary:
Through the Early Childhood Special Education Program, children who may demonstrate potential
developmental delays that would adversely affect their learning are located, identified, evaluated, and,
if qualify, provided special education services. The following services are available: individualized
teacher-facilitated direct instruction, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, and/or physical
therapy.

Behavior Intervention Consultation services are provided to assure that 3 through 5 children in need of
behavioral interventions are properly identified and receive the necessary services and supports. The

Early Childhood Special Education (cont’d.)
interventions for students with whom there are behavioral concerns and are in need of programming to
improve educational performance.

Once a child is referred to the program, that child is screened in the areas of vision, hearing, motor,
cognition, self-held, social/emotional, and communication. If the screening process identifies a delay,
a referral for further evaluation may be made. When the evaluation process is completed and it is
determined that a child qualifies, a plan is developed to address the deficit area(s). A review of the
child’s progress, educational placement, and plan is done annually.

The Early Childhood Special Education staff works closely with school districts, Head Start programs, day
care programs, and parents in White, Woodruff, Prairie and Lonoke counties in order to meet the goal of
the program.

Literacy Major Highlights (cont’d.):

The Literacy Specialists met regularly with the Arkansas Department of Education and other specialists
during Unit meetings. Literacy Unit Meetings take place monthly for all state literacy specialists to
convene as a professional learning community. This time is built by a state level team to brainstorm,
share, execute, and receive professional development that is data-driven to impact student
achievement. Training of trainers, in ELLA, ELF, CLASS, Content Literacy, and other state level trainings
have taken place over the past year. Currently, an in-depth study of the Common Core State Standards
continues as school districts in Arkansas prepare for implementation with dedicated support from the
specialists. Additionally, monthly CIV Conversations were conducted to provide training and support on
educational issues and practices on a state and national level.

Literacy Future Plans
Since the Literacy/Science position is unique, the Specialist will continue to attend Literacy Unit and
Science Unit meetings, with priority given to Literacy. It is hoped that the Specialist can share ideas and
strengths from one department into the other. It is observed that both Units are doing great things, and
what needs to happen next is the transferring and implementation of those ideas into each Unit. This is
now unfolding with professional development in Content Literacy, SIM, and Picture Perfect Science.

Work will continue on the Content Literacy Core Team. There will be a reflection from Summer 2011
trainings with revisions expected, followed by further development of more training modules. This is all
in support of the Common Core State Standards.

Mathematics Program Summary:
Wilbur D. Mills Education Service Cooperative, in partnership with the Arkansas Department of
Education, administers the Mathematics’ Program for grades K-12, established by Act 1392 of 1999 for
the improvement of mathematics’ instruction throughout Arkansas. Assistance is provided to schools
through professional learning programs, demonstration lessons, teacher observations, technical
assistance, and teacher/administrator conferences in order to improve the teaching and learning of
mathematics through increased content understanding and improved instructional strategies across the
curriculum. Professional learning opportunities offered in 2010-2011 included:

   Instructional Facilitating: Professional development based on Dr. Jim Knight’s Instructional Coaching
    Institute from the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. The training will refine the
    Instructional Facilitator’s understanding of their various roles and distinguish between effective and
    ineffective coaching practices. The training will also provide leadership skills for leading reform, give
    direction on fostering internal commitment in others, and determine when it is or is not appropriate
    for modeling in a classroom.
   Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI): This statewide initiative utilizes a research-based framework
    designed around how elementary school children learn concepts of number, operations, and early
    Algebra. The goal of this training is for teachers to learn how to utilize this framework to inform
    their mathematics instruction. Teachers learn to analyze and write mathematically demanding story
    problems and number sentences in order to assess and further students’ understanding of concepts
    and skills. Attention is also focused on how to recognize student responses in terms of cognitive
    development, facilitate discussions that will provide a window into children's thinking, strengthen
    children’s ability to reason about arithmetic, and build students’ capacity for algebraic reasoning.
    Currently have 164 teachers involved in CGI.
   Unpacking Common Core State Standards is a continually evolving professional development being
    designed to help districts understand the new Common Core State Standards and how they will
    impact mathematical teaching and learning in the classroom for both teachers and students.
    Recently trained over 300 K-2 teachers. Additional training will be provided throughout the year for
    K-12 teachers.
   Math Coaches’ Training: The focus of this training for math coaches/instructional
    facilitators/specialists consists of both content and pedagogy for mathematics education. Emphasis
    is placed on the Common Core State Standards, instructional strategies, utilizing manipulatives in
    order to build conceptual understanding, and authentic assessments.
