facilitated by a District 100 administrator
Instruction Committee    
Administrator - Colleen Cook and Bea Maldonado

Instruction Colleen Cook, administrator Report given by Colleen, committee spokesperson
The Instructional Committee has met 3 times. We are looking closer at the option of increasing class size at the primary grades since the group felt it has the least negative impact on students and will reduce the amount of students who are force transferred. We are also looking at the role of school and district level coaches. The committee feels that there should be no cuts made to the current staffing of the special education program.
