DAG Conference November 2014

Activities

  • DAG is recognised by the Local Authority (LA) as a formal channel for collective consultation with governors, and is committed to abiding by the joint Memorandum of Understanding: Working Together for Better Schools adopted in 2009 and revised in 2014.  The Board is in regular contact with senior LA officers and has direct access to the highest officials.
  • DAG has representatives on all LA consultative groups and working parties and plays a leading role in a number of the key committees (currently holding the position of Chair and Vice-Chair of the Devon Education Forum).  These representatives feed back information to the DAG Board on a regular basis.  These ‘Reports Back’ are compiled and printed as an appendix to the Minutes of Board meetings.
  • DAG provides a county forum for issues of common concern and makes representations about them to the LA, to Government and to other appropriate bodies.  It takes a full part in national consultations in association with the National Governors’ Association.
  • DAG Newsletters are provided by e-mail to all interested governor contacts free of charge. Newsletters are sent out fortnightly during term time. They attempt to provide governing bodies with the latest news, information and deadline reminders that will help governing bodies work efficiently.   Wherever appropriate we indicate where further detailed information can be found.
  • DAG manages its own website which is regularly updated and contains information on nearly all current educational issues.
  • Further details on DAG, including volunteering to sit on LA Boards and Committees and the DAG Board, can be obtained from [email protected]
