Welcome to the AK-CSS Members Forum! Please sign up to join the discussions.

This is the shared workspace for the AK-CSS Executive Board.  Because of our belief in being as transparent as possible, it is open to all AK-CSS members who are interested in our council's steering work.

It will serve not only as an archive of the boards's work to date, but as an asynchronous meeting spot for board members to share their ideas and questions between our monthly video meetings.

  • The real work of AK-CSS development comes through high functioning committees. These work groups are where the majority of the energy to set, act and assess our collaborative goals needs to be focused this year. The executive board exists to oversee all major commitments of council time and energy, but the nuts and bolts work of getting things done is coordinated currently through our 3 Standing Committees:
    - Information & Resources,
    - Professional Development
    - Recruitment and Membership

    or one of our Ad Hoc Project committees, commisioned by the council board to coordinate special AK-CSS projects. Currently two projects are included:
    - AK-CSS iDidaContest Design Challenge
    - Alaskan S.S.Educational Policy Advocacy

    We need to get ALL of these work groups firing on all cylinders now, so we can set our goals for the year in each group. Only then can each group generate a set of "next tasks" for for ACTIONS in the coming months....
  • We are coming to a make-or-break point this school year in our council's revitalization effort. If we as a board work to make this a model year, we will have a powerful, collaborative organization sustaining and growing one year from now. I hope you all feel the same way.
