Resources Committee  

Has completed a resource list that has resources listed in alphabetical order and also list the agency, website address, type of resources, content area, grade level and cost. The committee has also worked on adding a variety of templates that could be copied and used by site coordinators. The Resource Committee will be continuing to add to the list of resources available to site coordinators.

Promising Practices Committee  

Has been tasked with identifying and prescribing promising, or best, practices that professionalize the Site Coordinator with communities. It is the Promising Practices Committee’s goal to develop and maintain guidelines that Site Coordinators may utilize to fit the needs within their communities in order to execute best practices; ultimately building relationships with all stakeholders.

In the past, the Committee has accomplished creating a training/course blueprint that speaks to the competencies of the Site Coordinator position through building the Site Coordinator Core Competencies. Last year, the Promising Practices Committee undertook the duty to review, revise, and revamp the Site Coordinator Core Competencies into a more relevant and understandable format. With this goal accomplished, the Promising Practices Committee plans to review and revamp the Site Coordinator Core Competencies even further this year to include COVID-19 protocol, considerations, and best practices moving forward in an era of pandemic.
