Review and approval March and April 2019 Minutes

  • Melissa Dahle motioned
  • Jessica Sanders 2nd

Business

  • Principal Auld updated council members on where we are for goals, reading progress is still in the low range, we could have 3 full time reading teachers and still not reach every student but we are working on it.
  • Principal Auld was very pleased to announce there are 53 teachers who committed to the Learning Academy being held in June this year.
  • Vice Principal Markwork reported we have contracted with Utah State University to have an Intern 20 hours a week in conjunction with the Psychology Department as discussed in the April Community Council meeting.

Questions/Concerns from Council Members

  • Concerns about the number of teachers leaving LHS for Cache County schools, is the county actively recruiting our teachers?
    • The caliber of teachers at Logan High is remarkable, it is an ongoing problem with a small District competing with larger districts and their tax base.
    • We are doing everything we can to keep our teachers, employees of the District were just given a substantial raise.
  • Question about students keeping their school issued laptops over the summer break?
    • Students will be allowed to keep their laptops with parent approval, forms were sent home for parent signatures.
  • Chair Dan Kent reminded the council about elections, closing date May 17th 2019, voting will be held May 18th- 24th.

Adjourn

  • Principal Auld motioned
