Notes & Agenda

1. Welcome & Introductions Rebekah Cowdell

2. Election of Chair & Vice Chair Dr. Eschler
     ●     Chair
          ○     BC: motions to name/keep BC as Chair
          ○     Seconded by JH
          ○     Unanimous in favor, other than BC who abstained
     ●     Vice Chair
          ○     BC: nominates HI
          ○     Seconded by DH
          ○     Unanimous in favor to elect HI as Vice Chair, other than HI who abstained

          a. Consideration of additional positions:
             (Secretary, PTA Liaison, and school drama selection committee member)
          ●     Secretary will be JHS VP – JL has volunteered
          ●     PTA Liaison will be HI who volunteered to do it again
          ●     Drama selection committee will be BC & PD
                ○     BC & PD would like to do it again and both volunteered

3. Review SCC Roster Newly Elected Chair
     ●     Members will review their published contact information:
          ○     Email
          ○     Phone Numbers
          ○     JL will get to Wayne Jones to update JHS website

4. Review and Approval of May Meeting Minutes Newly Elected Chair
     ●     HI motions to approve May minutes
          ○     JB seconded the minutes
          ○     unanimously approved

5. Budgets Dr. Eschler
     ●     Covering Item #5 & #7 together
     ●     Review of TSSP Plan with Land Trust & TSSA funds that were approved last year
          ○     Plan was approved under the assumption that 1 period of a teacher was $10,000; however, $10k is too low. Therefore ALS Facilitator ($25k) and two hall                           monitors ($60k) have not been hired because we used the budget for those two positions to fund the additional teachers with an increased cost
          ○     CSD did provide and paid for a 3rd Hall Monitor. We are now at 3 full-time hall monitors.
          ○     BE spoke about how September monies can be inaccurate because we have not received exact numbers from CSD. They are projections.
          ○     JB: How variable are the projections from the budgets?
                 ■     Money has been higher than projected, but CSD and the state have indicated that money should stabilize and be more accurate to projection.
          ○     DH: Do we have an ALS facilitator?
                 ■     Yes. CSD provides a full-time ALS coordinator. We will consider hiring a 25 hr ALS assistant once we know the budget for sure

6. Data Review Dr. Eschler
     ●     We met our school climate goal from last year: Increase in 5% of students that feel connected to an adult at school. New goal will be to increase by another                     3% this year. BE believes that it rose from 85% in 2020-2021 to 90% in 2021-2022.
     ●     Graduation goal from last year, we do not know yet because graduation numbers are not finalized, yet.
