  • Members commit to demonstrate good-faith efforts that leverage the competencies, skill-sets and dispositions in the Profile of a Virginia Educator, Profile of a Virginia Education Leader, and Profile of a Virginia Classroom. These efforts are undertaken in order to strengthen professional learning opportunities for educators across the Commonwealth as they build capacity for the implementation of the Profile of a Virginia Graduate.
  • Members agree to engage diplomatically with fellow members in discussions pertaining to the trajectory of the Partnership, its goals and any financial or policy decisions that may arise.
  • Members agree to make public resources and events developed by their organization available for display and promotion on the Partnership website.

Procedural Expectations

  • The Partnership will regularly convene meetings to discuss relevant policy, financial, and/or administrative matters. Partners agree to make representatives of their organization available for such discussions, as appropriate, whether in-person or through teleconferencing methods.
  • The Director of the Partnership will be responsible for developing and distributing meeting resources, including but not limited to: agenda, itinerary, and presentation materials.
  • In the event the Partnership must reach a decision regarding financial or policy matters, the Director will submit a proposal to members for consideration. Members agree to cast one (1) vote in favor or opposition to the proposal within a reasonable amount of time set forth and agreed on by the Director and Partnership. In the event of a tie, the Director will evaluate the results and propose a modified solution to members for consideration.
