The Principal's Weekly of 10/15 has information on the 2008-2009 CEP. A revised template for October has been issued which can be accessed. The template outlines the CEP development process. The draft CEP must be submitted by mid November to be reviewed. The final copy is to be submitted to the Office of School Imptovement in Dcember. There is also a CEP timeline available. Ask your principal for these documents.
The appendices of the CEP are important. The appendices for Title 1 schools must show the 1% of funds set aside for parent involvement as well as 5% to insure that all teachers in core subjects are highly qualified.
There is also a CEP page showing the allocation of the Contract for Excellence Funds every school received.
All SLT's should make sure they are given copies of the CEP and that at least the documents are reviewed. Remember, the SLT is suppose to develop the CEP and at the very least should have meaningful input.
