We anticipate making changes or adding categories after receiving and reviewing field surveys.

                                                        Annotations:

                                                        • The star rating system has run its course and is somewhat disabling to our program.  It prevents qualified but non-starred instructors from teaching and, for various reasons, is biased. We want to give coordinators more power in choosing instructors and enable them to make informed decisions. At first, coordinators will place instructors from the certification list as well as pulling from their own resources. However, our goal is to add instructor liaisons to each region/area to work with coordinators in making choices based on their class need, location and environment. See Staffing for more information.

                                                        • * How much of this should be handled nationally and regionally? * Are new instructors treated with the same protocol as seasoned instructors? * Should we open the online application for any applicant? Suggestion is that new applicants are dropped into an "application review" status.
