Samantha Pacheco, Dennis Annicelli, Quentasha Hutley, J. Levi Nickelson, Anne Lerner, Molly McLaughlin, Gerardo Heredia
We will be talking about a lot of different topics in these meetings. One major topic will be the school budget. Downtown is telling us that we have over a $350,000 deficit. What does that mean for us? It means that some people may not have a job. The first people to go would be the non-essential staff. We donâ€™t want there to be a riff. This may or may not happen. It is all based on enrollment and the previous yearâ€™s budget. This may not happen, so far nothing has happened and we will continue to function as we are until we are told otherwise.
Where does the money come from? It can come from a number of places; Downtown, it could be recovered from cutting positions, getting more students, or it could be recovered from substitute teachers. This means we will be limited with supplies and transportation. Just know we have come a long way. We live by the motto S.A.N.D. Schoolâ€¦united with families and students.
2. Rules and Regulations
Annicelli: I know Mr. Guadalupe, Adriannaâ€™s father has been very involved in the past.
Nickelson: Maybe we can create some kind of incentive for the kids as a way to engage parents.
Annicelli: I will also reach out to Mr. Jackson. He is very involved with the basketball team and he might be interested.
Pacheco: It would be nice to get some t-shirts made so we can advertize the group. I could wear it and people will see where my kids go to school and see that I am involved.
On the other wall we have attendance data. This shows studentsâ€™ progress. Last year 47% of our students were chronically absent.
Pacheco: I know my kids had a lot of absences last year.
Heredia: This year Ms. Garcia is in charge of attendance and we are doing much better.
5. Set up Election
6. Superintendentâ€™s Parent Advisory Council
Pacheco: I will. I will just need to work out where my kids can go after school.
Heredia: The meetings will be in the afternoon.
