Some suggestions for extra funds were:

Offer more teachers the option to work through their Prep period, providing more instruction/help for students, creating Math, Science and English “Labs”.

Notice: Parent members, open spots, motion made by Melanie Peterson to have Tracy Munson take on the 1.5-year term and Lianne Wappet take on the .5-year term, seconded by Dan Kent.

Business:  Chair Pond turned time over to Principal Auld to discuss 2nd qtr. Grades, absences, Innovations update, other per Principal discretion. Talked about Sharp survey results, students not feeling comfortable talking to teachers, lost in the crowd, this brought up the question:

Could we hire more Counselors?  Ken responded we are actually below the State ratio of Counselors to students, we would definitely benefit having more, but to send any concerns to the Superintendent.

Other questions:

Are the “incentive” cards being handed out by teachers/staff and being redeemed at the school store? Response, we will look into the data-

Chair Melanie Pond brought to the council’s attention important upcoming dates, Jessica Sanders made the motion to adjourn, motion was seconded by Sela Wallace and unanimously approved.

Next Community Council meeting: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 5 pm.
