Program Review Handbook Discussion
Brodnick continued the discussion on Program Review Handbook from our last meeting.  McGeorge feels that this handbook is positive and is better aligned and not duplicated where that has happened in the past. The flexibility in the model is well appreciated too.  Questions were brought up about the action plan and units.  The handbook will be in draft form for the next several months.  Cabinet will have the next review before going to the Board. Brodnick did mention that this will take several years before this handbook is finalized.  Overall, there has been a very positive reaction with minor suggestions.   

Innovation Panel Preparation Discussion
Brodnick distributed a one page worksheet that will be provided to the Innovation Panel attendees for the upcoming meetings May 2 and 3, 2007.  The group took a few minutes reviewing the questions on the Preparation Worksheet.  The group provided some thoughtful feedback and Brodnick will take into consideration.

 

Next meeting: Tuesday, May 8, 2007, 2 - 4 p.m. in the Community Conference Room.

Meeting adjourned at 3:26 p.m.
