This document contains four issues of the National Council of Instructional Administrators (NCIA) Newsletter, which offers announcements of conferences, Exemplary Initiatives Award winners, and activities and reports from regional representatives about political, economic, and academic issues within states and regions. The February 2000 newsletter includes reports on "barrier-free movement" from specified associate degree programs to comparable baccalaureate degree programs; performance measures, institutional effectiveness, and other concerns related to accountability; access and developmental education issues; and a statewide initiative to develop a Virtual Campus for Wisconsin's Technical College System. The June 2000 newsletter includes a description of Maryland and Virginia's standardized procedures for assessment and placement into college level classes and South Carolina's Advanced Technological Education Center of Excellence, which is a statewide systemic initiative designed to increase the quantity, quality, and diversity of engineering technology graduates. The September 2000 newsletter presents the NCIA 2000-01 strategic plan and features Colorado Works!, an award winning statewide project to organize and expand the business-oriented training and education initiatives of the state community colleges. Emerging trends in developmental education are addressed on a state by state basis. In the December 2000 issue, the instructional technology design program at Cuyahoga Community College (Ohio) is discussed. (PGS)
