Hi Everyone -

The VITA-Learn Board instigated the process that has led to the proposed
DRAFT Information Technology endorsements for Educational Technology
Resource Teacher and Technology Coordinator. The process began way back in
December 2000 and has finally reached the point where there is an
opportunity for broad and significant comment on these two proposals.

There has been significant and healthy informal dialogue on this list
concerning these propsals for some time now....but THIS is now the time to
get more formal with commentary. The Department of Education and the Vermont
Standards Board need your thoughts and suggestions in order to ensure these
endorsements are appropriate and meet your needs. Commenting on this list at
this point will have NO effect. Speaking at one of the public sessions OR
sending written comment via e-mail
([log in to unmask])WILL!!!

I can't stress enough how important your comments are right now!

Please consider attending and participating at one of the two sessions
planned next week:

Tuesday, 1/14 4:30-6:30PM at So. Burlington HS (Multipurpose Room)
Thursday, 1/16 4:30-6:30PM at the Springfield Tech Center (Room E303)

The endorsements can be found at:
