    1. Christina Souther made a motion to approve minutes for March 23rd and Lisa Shaw 2nd.
  2. Reports
    1. Site
      • New Accountability System – We have a new accountability system. We have gone to a new dashboard model. The reference chart helps you look at the status and create goals and measure change. The goal is to move to the green. It is similar data, just a new format.
      • State Priorities/District Goals/Site Goals – Indicators are by priority. We have both State and Local goals that are listed in priorities from 1-10. 1: Conditions at the School. 2: Implementation of State Academic Standards. 3: Parent Engagement. 4: Academic Indicator, English Learner Indicator. 5: Chronic Absence Indicator, Graduation Indicator. 6: Suspension Rate Indicator. 7 & 8: College/Career Indicator. 9: Coordination of Services for Expelled Students. 10: Coordination of Services for Foster Youth.
      • Current Working Balance Expenditures.
  1. PESLCAP/Supplement: The biggest expense was the 127 Chrombooks which were ordered and received. The Ipads are in and we are waiting on cases. We purchased 22, instead of 18 because the price went down. 16 Chrombooks will be housed in the Library. We will have “presentation station” available for teachers as a backup plan for when their Elmo bulbs burn out.
  1. $8,274.00 was spent on iPads & iPad Cases. Osmos was part of the money. We already own it, and have to install.
  2. $14,403. Is what we have yet to spend

 

  1. $11,411.85 we are holding badk this money to spend on things like bulbs and computers that go down.
  • PES Title 1

    1. $27,276.47 total available.

  • PES PARENT ED.

    1. $2,928.00  At the first of the year we want to discuss this as an agenda item. We may want to combine with multiple sites?

  • PES Professional Development

    1.  $16,179.82 to roll over to next year. The idea is to have someone come here for Professional Development.

     

    So many classes are using Iready that we need to see how many classes are using Super Start to see how many licenses we need to renew.

     

    Christal Peters made a motion to motion to approve Scholatic, renew Rusty, purchase headsets that are needed, and see how many classes are using SuperStar, so that we can renew if necessary. Laura Taylor 2nd.

     

  • Teacher Reports: All grades are at end of year and doing report cards.
  • DAC: Christina Souther reported that this is NOT an informative meeting. There is not opportunity to share. There is a slide show, yet nothing happens and there is no open discussion. You have to hunt down the meeting to know when and where it is. You have to get an invite.
