The first meeting of the CIS Training working group identified and documented important program, policy, and administrative issues faced by CIS affiliates across the state.. Facilitated by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and TXCC, this working group of CIS affiliates provided feedback on the sequence, types, and facilitation of trainings. TEA hired a new team member to oversee the Training working group as well as manage the CIS data system.
TXCC also facilitated the development of several work breakdown structures (WBSs) to help organize the state coordinator’s role. These structures outline the major components and responsibilities of managing the CIS of Texas program. Of the major components identified, TXCC and TEA completed two WBSs, a Chapter 89 Rule Revision, and the 2016 CIS Grant Application. Once completed, the series of WBSs will serve as a current and historical document that outlines the process and timeframe for completing the major components of the CIS state coordinator role.
TXCC continues to support TEA with monthly CIS of Texas executive director calls, documenting pertinent information and action items.
