      teachers hired this year in the NCEC school districts.
NCEC Membership/New school district administrators:
All 17 school districts have paid their NCEC membership dues. Cynthia requested the
names of newly hired administrators so that she can include their names on the NCEC

NCEC Governing Board – meeting dates:
The administrators discussed representation of NCEC Governing Board members and the
majority of administrators stated that their local School District Board members
requested that they represent as their Governing Board member. It was decided to no
longer have a NCEC administrative board, only a NCEC Governing Board. All 10
meetings will now be NCEC Governing Board meetings.

NCEC Bylaws:
Cynthia presented a draft with the new NCEC Bylaws for review. Due to the decision to
remove the NCEC Administrative Board, she will rewrite the bylaws and policies and
email it to administrators for review.

Data Training:
Bill Demaree from the MDEC regional education agency will train Ron Hett with data
analysis, data interpretation, and RTI strategies. Ron will then contract his services with
NCEC to work with schools and their data teams.

NCEC Services:
NCEC supported 2 proposals: PLC training with Jim Stenehjem for Velva School District
and Block Scheduling with John Strebe for Harvey School District. Both Jeff M. and
Dan S. gave a report on the trainings for their staff. NCEC contributed $2000 for each of
the staff trainings. Cynthia would like to visit each school district for a faculty meeting
and encourage staff to become regional presenters for skill/expertise that they can share
with other educators.
