Statewide Policy Advisory Board members Dr. Juliette Bell, Dr. Tommy Benson, Dr. Alan Mabe and Dr. June St. Clair Atkinson listen to Donna Albaugh, principal of Long Hill Elementary in Cumberland County.

Statewide Policy Advisory Board
While the project currently focuses on mathematics, the Statewide Policy Advisory Board considers a broader scope that covers both science and mathematics. The Board membership includes university administrators and faculty, teachers, principals, superintendents, elected officials from the NC General Assembly, directors of foundations and CEOs from business and industry. An offshoot of the Board is the IHE/K-12 Connections Task Force, a group of deans and department heads that focuses on ways university divisions of Arts and Sciences can become more involved in K-12 schools.


The Board last met February 6, 2007, in the UNC Board of Governor’s Conference Room in Chapel Hill with Dr. June St. Clair Atkinson and Dr. Alan Mabe serving as co-chairs. Dr. Atkinson is NC State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Dr. Mabe is Vice-President of Academic Planning and University-School Programs for UNC-General Administration. Twenty-two Board members and 26 invited guests participated in the annual meeting of thegroup. Those in attendance represented businesses, foundations, the NC General Assembly, universities, communitycolleges and schools. Others in attendance included the project Evaluation and Management Teams, NC-PIMS Facilitators, two principals from Cumberland County Schools, staff from the NC Department of Public Instruction, and Ms. Sarah M. Smith, Director of Sponsored Programs at UNC-General Administration.
