[HP (A) 2]

Meeting Highlights

Consent Agenda � All items approved.

Action Agenda � All items approved.

Discussion "Proposed Framework for the Statewide Plan for Higher Education, 2004-2012, [HP(D)2]": A review of the Statewide plan was presented. The Regents expressed particular interest in, and contributed ideas to, a public information brochure on this topic. Such a brochure might include: a depiction of higher education institutions across the state; characteristics of an effective higher education system; Regents Priorities and a draft timeline of related activities. Work on such a brochure, including a Web site link, is in progress.

"Discussion of Key Element of Regents Teaching Policy: Shortage of Teacher Educators in Certain Academic Disciplines [HP(D)3]": Deputy Commissioner Johanna Duncan-Poitier gave a detailed power point presentation on this item, seeking Regents guidance and endorsement on the waiver provision in Section 52.21 of the Commissioner�s Regulations. This Section relates to full-time/part-time teacher educators and the requirement that the majority of credit-bearing education courses be taught by full-time faculty.

In meeting with deans of teacher education and college presidents over the past three years, they have expressed great concern about the shortage of teacher educators to recruit in certain hard-to-staff certificate areas. There have been many instances where colleges have provided evidence that they simply cannot find a sufficient number of full-time faculty in certain hard-to-staff subject areas (i.e., ESL, special education, math and science) to comply with the regulations.

Some programs are experiencing an unintended administrative hardship in this regard and/or are considering closure of programs, due to this requirement. Deputy Commissioner Duncan-Poitier explained how that would have an adverse effect on the goal to find sufficient full-time faculty in certain hard-to-staff subject areas. The proposal allows the Commissioner to exercise his authority to provide a waiver to colleges, upon a satisfactory showing of good cause.

The waiver would not be automatic. Institutions would have to provide evidence of a significant effort to recruit full-time faculty to fill a shortage area discipline and document that shortage in the region where the institution is located. The waiver would only be for a two-year period, explained the Deputy Commissioner.

The Committee understood the variables involved in this issue, endorsing this approach, if and when needed. The Committee will look for appropriate follow-up and reporting back to the Regents with regard to this subject.

"24-Month Calendar [BR(D)1]": The Committee was presented with a review of the current 24-month calendar of long-range planning and major policy initiatives. They also received the 12-month calendar, with its more detailed format of upcoming activities. An opportunity for comment and feedback was provided.

The Committee requested that: a document be developed for public engagement that explains and crosswalks the areas in the policy statement where there may be regulatory implications; a strategy for specifically engaging parents be developed; and the policy statement be revised to recognize the importance of peer interactions among students, to ensure all the research points in the appendix (i.e., under educational program and classroom instruction) are addressed, to acknowledge that middle-level education is an USNY issue, and to improve the balance on the dual purposes of academic performance and personal development. The draft policy statement will be revised to reflect the Committee�s comments and sent off-line to the Board for comment prior to engaging the public in discussion. A status report on the public engagement process will be submitted to the Committee in April.

Policy review on status of limited English proficient/English language learners [EMSC (D) 4]

The Committee requested information on how LEP/ELLs are defined under State law and how SED data is collected so it can be shared and discussed with constituents and advocacy groups. It was noted that more reliable data is needed to make informed policy decisions. SED will:

  •  

  • Increase efforts to monitor the attendance of students transitioning from middle schools to assigned high schools in New York City;
  • Reconcile inconsistencies in student data submitted to SED by the New York City Department of Education and data collected by advocacy groups;
  • Review data for the 1998 student cohort to determine the pros and cons of extending the low-pass score on Regents exams for LEP/ELL students;
  • Increase monitoring of middle-level schools and others identified through New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) data to ensure they comply with the intensive English requirement;
  • Pursue strategies to address teacher shortages in ESL and Bilingual Education through the Regents Higher and Professional Education Committee;
  • Pursue strategies relating to alternative programs for late arriving students who have little or no formal education;
  • Pursue strategies relating to alternatives for late arriving students who have met all the graduation requirements except the Regents English exam, including continuing discussion with post-secondary institutions about formal arrangements for the transition of students;
  • Determine if there are existing tests that would be aligned with the State standards and meet the criteria for an approved alternative test to the Regents English exam; and
  • Ensure LEP/ELL students in low-performing schools are taking full advantage of academic intervention services and have access to supplemental education services and public school choice options available under No Child Left Behind.

The Committee suggested that experts in this area be invited to discuss what works in improving the achievement of LEP/ELLs. In addition, the Committee requested a list of the strategies we are pursuing as part of the policy review and that the list be shared with advocacy groups. The next installment of the comprehensive LEP/ELL report will be scheduled in May or June. At that time, achievement and dropout data for the 1998 cohort of LEP/ELL students will be available.

Amendment of Part 179 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education - Apportionment of Funds to Educational Broadcast Councils

Director of the Office of Educational Television and Public Broadcasting, Bob Reilly, summarized the purpose of the amendment.

  1.  

  2. Eliminate the provision which decreased or increased a station's share of matching funds based on its membership performance relative to other stations.

At the March meeting, your Committee will vote on this amendment and send it to the Full Board for approval.

Your Committee on Quality held its scheduled meeting on February 11, 2003. Regent Johnson, Vice Chancellor Sanford, Regents Rubin and Tisch were present. Regents Gardner and Phillips also attended.

APPROVAL

Regional Meetings

Your Committee recommends that the Board move from three regional meetings each year to two meetings. The agenda for these two regional meetings should include targeted conversations with specific constituency or stakeholders groups. Suggested groups include: community-based organizations, advocacy groups, faith organizations, local business leaders, the press, and prison educators/administrators. The Board should start using this targeted format with the May regional meeting in the Bronx.

Your Committee further recommends that the membership of the local committees planning regional meetings be revised to reflect the scope of USNY.

Concurrent Committee Meetings

Your Committee recommends that for the next six months the Board pilot the use of concurrent committee meetings (all committees except EMSC) as part of its monthly meeting schedule. Concurrent committee meetings will provide flexibility for scheduling more opportunities for full Board discussion on policy matters contained in the 24-month calendar as well as more time for the Board to hear from experts, meet with constituents, conduct advocacy, and training. The Committee also suggests that a schedule of speakers be developed, again guided by the 24-month calendar.
