     School Site Council Meeting Minutes

January 26, 2015

 

I.  Call to order: Mr. Peffers, chairperson, called to order the regular meeting of the Wilson Classical High School SSC meeting 3:15 p.m. on January 26, 2015, in room 127.

 

II. Roll call: Roll was called.

In Attendance: Gonzalo Moraga, principal; Scott Peffers, teacher; René Woodson, parent; German Angel, parent; Christine Combs, teacher; Cheryl Supernaw, classified staff; Marisol Zobler, YMCA; Maureen Gorman, counselor; Macy Jelinowicz, guest.

 

III. Minutes of the previous meeting:  Minutes of the December 18, 2014 meeting were not available for review as Jacqui Viale, secretary, was absent.

IV. ELAC Advisement – No report.

V.  Unfinished Business:  English Media Carts Update - Christine Combs stated that the district is requiring us to purchase Apple Care and E Waste fees for each laptop. In addition, the district no longer installs Microsoft Office for us at their costs.

Ms. Combs would like to amend our proposal to include:

- AppleCare for each computer ($299 each + 10% x 5 = $1,644.50)

- E Waste Fees

- Microsoft Office license for five users  ($139.99 each + 10% x 5 = $769.95)

- Total additional cost of $2,429.45

 

To reduce costs, Ms. Combs would like to change the Camtasia software to a less expensive product. SSC has already approved Camtasia at a cost of $1500. The cheaper software (I'll bring the title and figures) costs approximately $400 total. It's not as fancy, but it's doable. This would free up funds for the other unforeseen costs.

 

Mr. Moraga will check with Carol Lubahn, LBUSD purchasing person, on whether or not the District will provide hardware maintenance for the computers.

 

VI. New Business:

  1.  Mr. Moraga reported on the LCFF Budget Allocation for 2015-16 and handed out an Estimated LCFF Cost & Allocation 15/16 page for all high schools and went over Wilson’s total estimated cost and allocation for 2015-16 of $327,508.
  1. Mr. Steinhauser said schools will get an extra 30% above the base allocation this year, 10% above the base allocation next year, and 10% above the base allocation the following year.
  2. The Estimated Personnel funds are used for salaries for the School Community Worker, part time counselor and college aides. 
  3. The Estimated Carry Over funds are used for tutoring.
  4. The Total Estimated Allocation 15/16 is the guaranteed amount for 2015-16. 
  5. Mr. Steinhauser wants our budgets done in February/March instead of May/June; therefore, Mr. Moraga said, in our February 17, 2015 SSC Meeting, we must decide, and we can vote, if we want to continue to fund the following personnel.
    1. A part-time interventions counselor or full-time;
    2. Our School Community Worker (she is currently 50%);
    3. College student aides.

Mrs. Jelinowicz asked what we would like to see as evidence that the intervention programs are working.  The responses were:

  1. How ELD support has helped, specifically college student aides (report from the teachers)
  2. We would like to see all the data.
  3. We would like to have a student who has been successful report on Credit Recovery and how it helped him or her.
  4. We would like to hear from any student who has improved his or her grade through tutoring.
    1. Ms. Combs and Mr. Peffers said they would like teachers to be asked who they think should receive tutoring.

V. Unfinished Business:

  1. Data Analysis and Goal Setting:  Moraga reported that this month the school attendance rate was 96.53%, which meets the goal. The school is tracking CAHSEE passing rates, graduation rate, how many taking UC requirements, achievement gap, implementation of Common Core, and tracking ELD student progress. The Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) is adding to the WASC plan in item 4: to track how many students, parents, teachers are using School Loop. Zobler is training parents in the use of School Loop, Parent Vue and Parchment. Jelinowocz reported that the counseling department is now able to facilitate School Loop registration in the Counseling office. They are adding stations to do this, and encouraging subgroups at every contact point.

Moraga stated that additional WASC goals are connected to this type of technology. Combs said that follow-up surveys could be used to determine efficacy. It is important to evaluate this type of expenditure and ensure that there is no unnecessary redundancy. The budget is not sufficient to buy equipment for every teacher.

VII. ELAC Advisement: The second meeting of the committee will take place on October 31, 2014.

VIII. DCAC Report: Woodson reported that the meeting of DCAC took place October 16, 2014. The meeting focused on monitoring LCFF funds. School Site councils at all schools are being supported and educated. Accountability and transparency are paramount. The next meeting will be November 13 at 9:30.

     School Site Council Meeting Minutes

     September 29, 2014

I.  Call to order – Mr. Peffers, chairperson, called to order the regular meeting of the Wilson Classical High School SSC meeting at 3:10 p.m. on September 29, 2014.

                                           

II. Roll call – Roll was called, and an attendance sheet was passed around and all signed.

In Attendance: Gonzalo Moraga, principal; Scott Peffers, teacher; René Woodson, parent; Jacqui Viale, parent; Jennifer Stuart, teacher; Christine Combs, teacher; Macy Jelinowicz, ELL Intervention Specialist; German Angel, parent; Cheryl Supernaw, classified staff; Marisol Zobler, YMCA; Katie Peterson, student; Katherine (Shelby) Ishimine, student; Philip Grayson, student; Mr. Dees, teacher; Mr. He, teacher; Marianne Drummon, teacher.

 

III. Minutes of the previous Council meeting were distributed and reviewed. Stuart motioned to approve and accept. Combs seconded the motion. Motion carries unanimously.

Order of Agenda: Mr. Peffers asked the Council to rearrange the order of the agenda to accommodate the teachers who wished to speak to the council regarding the New Business--Math Intervention program. There were no objections.

VI. New Business: Mr. Dees, math teacher, reported that math tutoring has been very highly attended already this year, though more attendance in the afternoons. However only one teacher is available to tutor in the afternoons. Mr. Dees explained that student/peer tutors have been very successfully used in the past. If Wilson were to offer to pay student tutors it would lower the near 30 to 1 ratio with the teacher, and the cost would be much less than hiring more teachers. The math department proposes hiring 5 student tutors for 4 days a week at a cost of approximately $6000.00 per year. Mr. Moraga identified the proper format and process for submitting this expenditure for consideration by the Council and it will be brought to the next meeting on October 14, 2014.

IV. ELAC Advisement: Mr. Moraga stated that there is nothing yet to report.

Each School Site Council agenda shall include a dedicated time for Public Comment, which is intended to give opportunity for meeting attendees to speak to the council on items that are included on the agenda. Public Comment will be limited to a total time of 15 minutes, with a maximum of 3 minutes per speaker. If, in the sole discretion of the members of the SSC, there is a need for more time for Public Comment, an SSC member may motion for a vote to extend the time.

Woodson seconded the motion. Discussion about public comment and proper notification ensued.  It was generally felt that public postings of the meetings and agendas should be made in publicly visible locations where students and parents would see them. Motion carried unanimously.

Then Woodson motioned that it be added to Article III under the chairpersons responsibilities that notices be posted by the Council Chairperson in the following public places: by the front door of the school, in the Activities office, in the Attendance office, in the Parent Center, and on the bulletin board in the Copy Room, as well as on the website. Stuart seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously. Mr. Moraga will send a message to the school community to know where to look for postings. Mrs. Supernaw will ensure that postings are made to school website.

Combs motioned to approve the Wilson School Site Council Bylaws for the 2014-2015 school year with all of the approved changes, Supernaw seconded. Passed unanimously.

           b. Data Analysis and Goal Setting discussion is tabled until October 14th meeting due to the inability to access accurate data while the system is being updated.

           d. Parent Involvement Guidelines were distributed and reviewed. Combs motioned to approve for current school year, Viale seconded. Motion passed unanimously.

VI. New Business: Combs asked the Council to consider funding a media cart for use by the English Department, to serve the high numbers of ELD students.

ELAC Advisement – A new parent representative needs to be designated, therefore there is nothing to report at this time.

Unfinished Business:  Mr. Moraga reviewed the items to be discussed.

  1. Currently there is a carryover in the budget in the amount of $37,150.00 that had previously been designated for College Aides for ELL students. Last year administrative difficulties in staffing prevented the total from being spent. Mr. Moraga asked the council to consider continuing the program and reaffirming the use of funds for this purpose. The cost of 2 part time aides for 18 hours per week would cost approximately $10,500.00.
  2. Funding for Tutoring Interventions and Credit Recovery was discussed. This year the District cut funding for the Credit recovery teacher position. Mr. Moraga asked the council to consider allocating approximately $10,000.00 from the Tutoring Program to fund Credit recovery. This requires that the budget be amended to include Credit Recovery with the Tutoring Interventions.
  3. The District did not hire an assistant principal of Mathematics for this school year, due to lack of personnel. Mr. Moraga asked the council to consider re-allocating the funds intended for this position to be used for other Math support. The Math Department has been asked for input on this allocation. Mr. Peffers will report to the council at the next meeting on the feedback received.

Viale motioned to continue support and funding of 2 part time College Aide positions to work with ELL students at a cost of approximately $10,500.00. Supernaw seconded. The motioned carried unanimously.

Stuart motioned to approve the addition of Credit Recovery to the Tutoring Interventions budget, to pay for a Credit Recovery teacher position, at a cost not to exceed $10,000.00. Combs seconded. The motion carried unanimously.

New business:  

  1. Macy Jelinowicz reported on the goals of the Interventions Team, which includes: the Intervention Specialist, a social Worker, Social Work Interns, a Community Worker, College Specialist, Grade Level Administrators and Counselors. Reports on the data from the 2013-14 school year will be made at the next meeting, specifically the percentages of student passing with a “C” or better and those with “D” or “F”. The program will be monitored for progress weekly. The council tabled discussion of further interventions and improving outcomes for those students not passing last year until the next meeting.
  2. Mr. Moraga passed out copies of the Wilson School Site Council Bylaws. He asked all members to review the bylaws in advance of the next meeting so that we can approve them for the current year. Moraga drew attention to the need to add a section on the guidelines for Public Comment.
  3. Moraga reminded the Council that all meetings must be properly posted and noticed to the public, and that a calendar and minutes of the meetings must also be available in a timely manner.
  4.  

Progress Monitoring Report: Reports on tutoring and parent involvement will be made at the next meeting.

Future Agenda Items: The Council will vote on the bylaws at the next meeting. An Implementation Timeline was distributed to all present indicating the topics to be considered by the Council throughout the year and associated deadlines. SSC election of officers, bylaws, ELAC advisement, and data analysis and goal setting will all be considered at the September 29, 2014 meeting. The Council will reconvene on September 29, 2014 at 3:00 pm in Ms. Combs’ classroom.

Chairperson Peffers asked for any other new business to be emailed to him.

Combs motioned to adjourn the meeting. Moraga seconded. All in favor. Meeting adjourned at 6:31 pm.
