A6: School Coordination Meetings- Spain

  •       Project Teacher's MEETINGS  at IES San Sebastián

     

    • As it is stated in the Chronogram/ Timeline, every partner agrees to hold regular meetings at their own schools , at least, every other month, to coordinate and implement the activities.

                 

    • Meetings will deal with project management in general or any other issues that might come up. Thus, activities to be carried out will be coordinated and  put into practice, given visibility and informing the Board.

     

    • The Coordinator takes minutes at every meeting.

     

    19 Dec 20

           Meeting to discuss about the project weaknessess as stated in the Resolution Document of Evaluation.

    The Sepie's resolution published the provisional lists of admitted and excluded applications for the Key Action 2 - Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness has been published.

    In this list, our project appears with errors and we are urged to present allegations until 12 January 2021.

     

    29 Jan 21

          The Sepie resolution has been published in which the result of the eligibility and/or quality assessment of the project appears. Our project appears with an evaluation of 69.2, a mark that we consider quite low and for which we assume that the project will most probably be rejected.

    All this is discussed with our European partners and we express our fears.

     

    18 Mar 21

           A contract must be drawn up with each of the partners, signed by their respective representatives, in which they commit themselves to the project. We do not have any model or any reference on how to do this, so we get in touch with other Spanish schools that have also been selected for an Erasmus Ka226 through a whatsApp group to share financial mangement doubts, solutions, etc.
