Training for WASC will be March 27th with Karen Boden, Nancy Cobb, Jim Garza, Linal Harada and Jayne Pimlott attending at the LACOE office.


Parent/Teacher/Student Survey:


Teacher survey has been completed and the student survey will be done in the spring.  The parent survey will be on-line beginning March 10 and ending March 29th.  Parents will be notified via Consent Connect and Connect Ed.


SCROC – Mr. Garza reported he had met with the Assistant Superintendent of SCROC and they would be continuing to offer the same number of classes with one change.  They would no longer be picking up the entire salary of the teacher.  There would be a cap of $10,000.00 per teacher.   Per Garza, this was an un-planned additional expense to the general fund, with no plan as to how this would be handled.

Announcements:  Ms. Pimlott mentioned the Ed. Foundation Fundraiser at McCormick & Schmick’s on Monday, February 25th.
