As part of our commitment to keeping you informed about the Youth Development Leadership Team, I want to share one of the things we’ve been working on for the last few months.
You may remember that in 2013, we reorganized our staffing structure and priorities to make our Youth Development principles, vision and robust regional teams a reality. We conducted a survey with educators to help assign regional team functions, and statewide program and administrative team assignments based on interest, knowledge, skills and abilities. The statewide program and operation team commitments were slated to last for three years, at which time we intended to revisit the charge to determine the next course of action and appropriate team membership.
Last fall, the YDLT asked the statewide program and administrative teams to submit reports summarizing their accomplishments from the last three years, and recommendations for moving the work forward.
The YDLT has been reviewing the reports, and looking at the makeup of the statewide teams, and how they can be more efficient and effective going forward. We also are exploring how the statewide teams can support progress on our strategic targets and our 1st generation work.
We plan to share more information soon about decisions regarding educator functions and the makeup of the statewide teams, which will be implemented this fall.
