Board of Ed lobbyist moves to NCAE

The N.C. Association of Educators has hired Ann McColl to be its first in-house lawyer.

In addition to legal work, she'll work on policy and lobbying.

McColl moves to NCAE from her job as lobbyist for the State Board of Education, where she's been for about two years.

"Ann brings a wealth of experience, talent, and commitment to our Association's work," said NCAE President Rodney Ellis. "Whether the issue is employment, working conditions, or education reform, Ann believes that educators deserve a strong voice. NCAE is stronger with Ann on our team."

New state K-12 lobbyist

Lawyer Ann McColl will be the new lobbyist for the state Department of Public Instruction.

She replaces Chris Minard, who was reassigned earlier this year.

McColl, who starts Jan. 3, will have the title legislative programs director and make $101,867 a year.

She'll have plenty to do, with giant state budget cuts looming.

Though education was spared doomsday cuts this year, the State Board of Education is still smarting from a legislative decision to move the operation and oversight of three residential schools for deaf and blind children from the state Department of Health and Human Services to DPI.

DPI has been struggling to figure out how to make the change work. Board members have talked about asking the legislature for increased staff to work with the residential schools.
