  3. Recommendation to join ACE (Alliance for Curriculum Enhancement) Andrea Fisher, Director of ACE, will be present to explain the role of ACE and how it can be of help to the Lockwood District. There are currently 39 schools in our region that belong to ACE. Through this organization curriculum is developed and professional development is provided for staff. With the upcoming Core Curriculum that the state has adopted and the assessment piece that is required by 2014-15, this organization will be a great help to our district. Our Professional Development Committee recommends that the Board agree to join ACE. The cost of joining will be $6,500 and an annual fee after that of about $3,500. Title I funds will cover these costs since professional development is a requirement of the federal program.

  4. Hire coach
    Randy Zacher is recommended to coach the 3-5 basketball program. He has worked with this group in the past. Keith Tresch has agreed to assist him.

  5. Hire substitute
    Colette Lemburg is recommended for hire as a substitute teacher. The background check is clear.

    The staff luncheon, prepared by the Trustees, will be on December 16 in the Boys and Girls Club.
