There is a potential for a big turnover in trustee elections as a result of the extension of the trustee term of office to four years in 2013.  CASS is waiting for cabinet approval for the professional practice standards, including the first ever Superintendent Leadership Quality Standard, and has begun providing professional learning for implementation in anticipation they will be approved.
