On February 6, SECC staff and Tracy Weeks, chief Academic Services and Digital learning officer at NCDPI, participated in a conference call to discuss the plan for a meeting with the Academic Services and Digital Learning Area scheduled for February 11. The NCDPI requested SECC to facilitate a conversation and provide tools that would allow the area team to examine its current mission, vision, and services for alignment with the state board of education strategic goals and the goals of other divisions within the area. On February 11, SECC staff led a face-to-face meeting with the chief Academic Services and Digital learning officer and directors for K-12 Instruction, Career and Technical Education, Special Education, Digital Teaching and Learning, North Carolina Virtual Public Schools, and the Policy and Planning analyst, which yielded a draft vision, mission, reflection process, and documents for the team to use to continue their area examination. On February 12, the SECC team provided an analysis of the Superintendent and Central Office Intermediate Structures surveys to the senior policy advisor to the state superintendent, the executive director for the state board of education, the director of Research and Federal Policy, and the deputy state superintendent for their review. The NCDPI project team was asked to request any additional data needed from the surveys and to begin to consider any questions from survey results that might be included in the RESA interview questions and/or protocol.
