Board Reviews Teacher Leadership Roles Jan. 21

The West Des Moines Community Schools Board of Education will hold a special workshop and meeting on Jan. 21, 2014 to review the district’s proposed plan for a Teacher Leadership and Compensation system.

A committee representing teachers, administrators, the teacher’s union, parents, higher education and the school board has been researching ways to offer our teachers formal leadership roles in the area of instruction and receive compensation for the increased responsibilities. The district plans to submit an application for the state’s Teacher Leadership and Compensation grant due the end of January.

Later in the meeting, the board will also address a student discipline matter.

Date: Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014
Time: 5:15 p.m.
Location: Fairmeadows Room, Learning Resource Center, 3550 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines
