4. School Transformation Communication Plan and Materials
Materials to explain K-12 Education Transformation, developed by the Oregon Department of Education, and numerous partners, was distributed with the agenda for the September 11, 1997 JBAC meeting. Members agreed that completion of the materials should satisfy the past work plan item for review of materials on education reform and that the item should not be carried forward into this year's work plan.
5. Joint Presidents' Meeting on Systems Articulation
Jon Carnahan presented the idea of a facilitated joint meeting of community college and university presidents to discuss issues surrounding articulation. A Kellogg grant on change at Land Grant Universities might be tapped for resources. Betty Youngblood had a somewhat different understanding of what seemed to be a related charge from Joe Cox. Clarification will be forthcoming.
6. Meeting Schedule
Elaine will call members regarding available dates as several members had conflicts on October 9th. The remainder of the meeting dates will be set at the October meeting. It was suggested that we invite Portland State University's new President, Dan Burnstein, to attend a JBAC meeting.
