Resources Sharing Update
Concerns were expressed about copyright and what can we share between the school districts.
People were encouraged to bring it up with their staff for a discussion.
An eNewsletter could be helpful in pointing out new additions.
Sharing between LMS platforms is easy, Exporting out to others (i.e. Google Classroom) is not. Our goal is to support two platforms (Schoology and Canvas) at this point.
A discussion about making our staff members better understand NASC. This lead to the idea of a having the districts share a NASC Coordinator to help this group move forward and coordinate. Time was spent on putting together a list of possible tasks for this shared position.
NASC Coordinator Position:
Coordinate Regular Meetings
Website (setup and maintain)
Cooperative Staff Development Coordination
Ongoing regional staff development
Grant writing (regional)
Curriculum coordination between districts
Digital resource development
Time considerations: 1/2 time
