SNIPPETS   

Edition 3
8 March 2006

Welcome
Welcome to the latest edition of Snippets. It has come to the ISEA's attention that a few members may not have been receiving ISEA information now that we are on line. As a result, we have double checked our membership lists against the mailing lists and believe that we have now rectified the situation. We hope that all our members are finding the website and associated emailed updates useful and timely. However, we do apologise for any inconvenience or delay in accessing information that may have resulted for any member.

Flexible Working Conditions.
Regional and State Office Directors were recently sent information on the flexible working conditions now afforded to CEOs. The ISEA understands that, in most instances, CEOs have been provided with a copy of the these conditions from their supervisor. CEOs should request this information from their relevant director, if they have not received it to date. Alternatively contact Ron Ikin at ron.ikin@iseansw.org.au to request a copy of the conditions and associated flex sheet.

CEO Induction
On Monday 27 February the DET, in conjunction with the ISEA, ran the first statewide induction for Chief Education Officers. The day covered a range of areas of importance to all newly appointed CEOs -- conditions, expectations and responsibilities, performance management -- as well as some specific areas of need for particular groups of CEOs. The day forms part of an ongoing program of support for newly appointed and more firmly established CEOs. At the end of the day, the ISEA executive hosted a welcome reception for the group and presenters. Participants rated the day well and were appreciative of the time taken by Directors, other presenters and the ISEA executive to orient them to their new roles.

Retirement of Norm McCulla
ISEA president, Norman McCulla will be retiring from the Department in April this year. Full details available at http://www.iseansw.org.au/mccullaretire.htm

Congratulations
Congratulations to Sara Thorley Smith, who was recently awarded the Public Service Medal in the Australia Day lists for services to students' safety and well being. Sara was formerly secretary of the ISEA.

CEO Positions
The ISEA is keen to hear of changes in CEO positions. If you know of a CEO position in your directorate or region that may have been recently established, filled, disestablished, or vacated, could you please let the ISEA know by sending an email to ron.ikin@iseansw.org.au
