Mr. Garza, Ms. Boden, Ms. Cobb, Mr. Mooko, and Ms. Harada would be attending a WASC training at LACOE next week.
Dr. Gen informed the council how they are gathering data and preparing for WASC both this year and for future years.
Site council was given a copy of the new ESLERs being presented by the Leadership Committee. These were composed after much discussion with parents, faculty, students, and administrators as well as the Leadership Committee.
Mr. Garza presented a recommendation from the Science Department for discussion proposing the elimination of Life Science from the High School Course offerings.
The science department would like incoming freshmen to take Earth Science for their physical science and go into biology for their lab science. The group shared its concern for the middle or struggling student and Mr. Garza would be going back to the science department with this information.
