MU Partnership for Educational Renewal

Operations Council

The MPER Operations Council is organized specifically to satisfy the need for a better flow of information between the MPER Governing Board and the MU Partnership for Educational Renewal (MPER) office to Partner Schools.

The MPER Operations Council will provide implementation of programs and decisions on operational issues to ensure they will be placed closer to the levels where they are actually occurring (within the Partner Schools and the College of Education).

MPER Operations Council members consist of Partner School personnel (based on student population), College of Education Faculty (six representatives), College of Arts & Sciences Faculty (two representatives), Community Colleges Faculty (one representative for each member college), Department of Elementary & Secondary Education representative, Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC) representative, and office staff of MPER.

Each representative of Partner Schools will serve a minimum of two academic years. The Partner District will decide when a representative's term is fulfilled and new representation is needed (unless a representative does not meet the attendance requirements of Section 3). Higher education faculty representatives will serve one year terms.

MPER office will set the time and place of the regular quarterly meetings. Meeting dates for the next school year will be set by the summer retreat date. Special meetings may be called by the Executive Co-Directors of MPER.

The Chairperson will be an elected Partner School council member and will serve for a two-year term beginning at the summer retreat. The Chairperson’s responsibilities shall include but not be limited to: plan the agenda for the quarterly meetings, facilitate the quarterly meetings, and represent the MPER Operations Council on the MPER Governing Board.

The MPER coordinator will keep minutes and records at each meeting. Minutes will be distributed electronically via the listserv or by paper if a council member does not have email access. Minutes will be approved at the beginning of each meeting.

More detailed information are available in the MPER Operations Council Bylaws.
