The Review Team supports the planning process that was utilized by the Faculty/Staff to identify and define issues for this review. We support the continuance of issue teams in Southeast Nebraska. We will not name the teams but leave that to the faculty and Dr. Cantrell to determine. We endorse the identification of program coordinators to head the teams. It is our suggestion that Dr. Cantrell and the identified program coordinators clearly define these roles in job descriptions, and plan for an ongoing communication between the district administration and the teams. It probably goes without saying, but we would like to see the program coordinator roles rotate so that many Faculty/Staff have the opportunity to lead in these roles. Of course proper communication with county boards will be necessary in this process. Our one caveat is that district teams work with the state action teams to deliver programs, and that SEREC representatives continue to be actively involved in the state teams. Keep an open communication line between state and district action teams so that programmatic efforts can be coordinated.
It is assumed, that these issue teams will be your programming model in the SEREC/District. The issues teams will also play an important role in developing extended education opportunities for Southeast Nebraska clientele. County plans of work and EPU plans will not exist.
