The Linked Learning Alliance Nominating Committee is now accepting nominations for the Linked Learning Leadership Council and its officers, through August 15, 2014.
The Linked Learning Alliance Leadership Council is the governing body for the Alliance, with responsibility to:
Develop a set of annual policy and legislative goals for Linked Learning.
- Provide for an executive director and exercise appropriate oversight.
- Develop and codify Operating Rules and Policies consistent with the Articles of Association.
- Develop and continuously update a strategic plan, and direct and oversee its implementation using metrics of measurement and accountability.
- Convene and oversee the work of Alliance working groups and committees.
- Convene the Alliance membership.
All members of the Alliance are eligible to nominate themselves or another member for election to the Leadership Council. Members of the Leadership Council are expected to attend its three regular meetings, as well as the annual Alliance Convening, and typically participate in one or more the Alliance’s working groups and/or ad-hoc task groups. Members of the Leadership Council serve without compensation, but travel and lodging expenses associated with Leadership Council meetings are reimbursed.
The nominating committee will seek to assure that the slate of nominees together reflect the community of stakeholders who are members of the Linked Learning Alliance, and the broad geographic and social diversity of California and the key sectors of the Linked Learning field. It will only propose candidates who are leaders in Linked Learning and committed to the mission of the Alliance, which is to bring a collective voice and coordinated effort to increasing the number of Linked Learning pathways in California’s high schools, expanding access and participation in pathways among the state’s high school students, and promoting high quality pathway design and implementation, in order to increase the number of students who will graduate from high school prepared to succeed in postsecondary education and careers.
Up to 9 members will be elected to the Leadership Council for a full term of two years, with terms commencing in the fall of 2016. In addition, the Leadership Council’s chair and vice chair will be elected from among those individuals nominated and elected to the Council.
