MSMC Chair D’Souza asked Dmitriy Voloshin, CFIRD staff, to address the committee. Mr. Voloshin noted that at the March 21–22, 2013, meeting the full Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) delegated authority to the MSMC to approve additional applicants for Instructional Materials Reviewers (IMR) and Content Review (CRE) experts for the 2014 Mathematics Instructional Materials Primary Adoption. Since the March meeting, the CFIRD received 30 additional applications for IMRs and no additional applications for CREs. None of the applicants stated any conflict of interest; therefore, the CFIRD staff recommended that all applicants be considered for approval.
Applications Received March 9, 2013 through April 15, 2013

Including applicants reviewed today, there is a total of 73 applicants to participate in the adoption. The goal is to have at least 100 applicants, therefore, the application deadline is being extended one week.

There was a roll call vote. The motion was approved by a unanimous vote of the members present (6–0).
