Minutes were accepted.
No new reports.
Unfinished business: Discussion of parent survey.
WASC Update: We received a 6 year-clear with only a paper response at the 3rd year mark. First time in 14 years no revisit required.
Budget Update: Hold on the other data but do not make any assumptions on the data until our first meet in September and open it up again. Attitudinal data is probably the results that won’t change every much. Mr. Garza requests survey results to go to him first. When should the survey go out?
Parent survey can be done in January #2010.
On 5/27 the City Council is meeting again to talk about allowing more filming dates for the high school.
As you know the initiatives went down and there will be a hit to education. Major cuts will take place and there could be an additional $700,000 before the end of June 2009. That would mean that we start the new school year with a deficit. We are hoping the stimulus package will make a difference. We will not know the staffing ratio until the end of June.
Classified have already been notified of not having reasonable assurance.
Survey: The students from the math department reviewed the survey and decided that #13, #15, #21, #23, #31 in the survey did not fit well with the Eagle Expectations.
We reviewed the questions that students came up with and agreed to add 7 new questions.
The survey will be conducted in the HS Library on June 1, 2, and 3rd thru Survey Monkey.
Two students will be graduating: Colleen Cox and Riley Peck.
Election of two new students will take place in September and they will start attending meetings in October.
Also one classified position will be open and it will be announced in September as well.
2009 meeting has been cancelled.
Next meeting will be September 23, 2009
Meeting adjourned at 2:25PM
