We only had 12 teachers (as opposed to the 13 who signed up) show up to
the first part of the PLT training. Bill E. did not need a sub and two
of our special ed teachers split a sub so that saved 3 sub costs off the
original figure. Our first dollar amount for Day 1 of this training
should come ($94 x 3) to $282 less than anticipated.

Notes for votes:
Amy Holman / Denise Pierson ProGrowth Vote
The ST approved money for Tim Bailey, Erik Johnson and myself to have a
consultant come in and work with us on proficiency based instruction.
However, after repeated unsuccessful attempts to schedule a meeting with
her, we have come to the conclusion that we can go forward without her
"expertise". The three of us went to a training at the DO last week that
helped us refine some of the things we are looking at. We feel that
with the release day and site visitation to Redmond, we have a good idea
of what we need to do. We would like to use the third day (which was
approved to be spent with the consultant) further refining our common
assessments. My question is, do we need to reapply since the money will
not be used exactly like we had proposed? I can easily put an amended
proposal together if needed.

only. Bob Gray questioned whether or not this was a valid requests,
since these recipients were using funds on a state in-service day.
Do Parent/Teacher conference times need to be changed? Perhaps Wednesday & Thursday nights and no morning session was suggested at division meeting.
Require kids to attend enrichment courses who do not pass state tests? What does the data show about students who take enrichment classes and their test scores? Joe Talley From the limited data that we collected last spring, there is
overwhelming correlation between the kids who attended an intervention
and a significant increase (3 or more points) in their test scores.
