  • Teacher Survey Information of School Needs-Laura
    • Laura shared that most teachers wanted to continue with aides for computer lab, FAME, and reading push in. Teachers also wanted to continue to support technology in the classroom.
    • The teachers also want to continue with Nicky’s folders for communication
    • There was discussion regarding continued money for the computer lease but no need to purchase a cart which frees up close to $6,000. The council talked about how to best use that money. With feedback from the teachers and reviewing the survey, the council decided it would be best to use the money to replace aging technology.
  • Discussion of school needs and plan
    • Laura proposed with the feedback given that she write a draft of the plan and send it out the week before the council meets.

Marjean Swanson voted to adjourn the meeting and Steve Turner 2nd it.
