Chancellor's Letter to Principals RE 2009-2010 CEP Process

On May 5th, Chancellor Klein issued a memo to Principals instructing them on the 2009-2010 CEP process until Regulation A-655 is revised.

The Pollicino Decision issued by Commissioner Mills on Dec. 31, 2008, instructed the NYCDOE to submit A-655 ( Dec. 2007) to the District Leadership Teams of each CEC for input and approval. A draft A-655 was submitted to the DLT's last month. The NYCDOE is still in the process of revising A-655.

The Chancellor's memo provides guidelines for developing the 2009-2010 CEP until A-655 is finalized. It states that SLT's "develop and review the school's CEP"and "consult with the principal in developing a school based budget and staffing plan aligned with the CEP." It also states that "SLT's must use a consensus-based decision-making process as their primary means of making decisions."

A copy of the memo can be obtained through the link provided on this site.
