Meeting Notes:

  • Budget: expenditures for curriculum, software and technology are determined by Office of Teaching and Learning, not individual schools
  • The Teaticket Nature Trail is complete. The district is still working with IT to find devices that students can use to scan the QR codes. 
  • Traffic at drop off and pick up times is still an issue. The school will soon have an additional crossing guard trained by the school resource officer to help direct and control the traffic flow. 
  • Jacki Hartman the new DEI Officer attended today’s meeting
