Approving Minutes

There was a motion to approve the minutes by Mrs. Sullivan, it was seconded by Mrs. Eyerly. The minutes were unanimously approved.

Old Business

  1. Dowd circulated a timeline for The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The Site Council is on target for finalizing the SPSA at the end of the year. C. Dowd reviewed some changes in budget for the coming school year, but encouraged members to allow the school’s mission, or vision, to guide the process rather than the budget when reviewing the SPSA.

The two main focuses for next year are 1) Continued development and implementation of Reader’s Workshop, and 2) Changing the way we use technology by replacing the computer classroom with a Colab space, and redefining computer time. Routine work on computers will take place in the classroom, and new and collaborative work will take place in the Colab.

Members were asked to provide concerns, thoughts, and questions to principal by Friday, 4/15. C. Dowd will put together a new SPSA with member input to share at May meeting.
