Leadership Team Meeting Minutes – March 8, 2012

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

3/8/12

 

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 11:20am.  Marcus proposed that we postpone the agenda items and just talk about Budget.  Everyone agreed.  We will have a meeting next week to address the rest of the issues.

 

Leadership Team

 

I.          Budget

 

–Katie distributed information from past years’ budgets.  We will have a deficit next year of over $650,000.

–Katie said the district says we must use 2% for operating expenses.  We have always spent more than 2%.

–Katie distributed a set of possible changes.  The SSC will review this and the principal will make the final decisions.

–Stan asked if there had been discussions with the district as the district has a $55 million reserve.

–Katie said we have to submit a budget by March 23 with the allocation the district has given us.

–Stan asked if there has been discussion with the district about their tremendous reserve.

–Marcus said we need to finish this discussion and then Marcus will go to the district.

–Katie reviewed the document District and School Site Possible Changes document. These are all proposals—room for additions and changes.

–Katie reviewed what the district will pay for next year and some of the changes we would make.  The cost column shows where the savings would be.

–Proposal now is to add a counselor, pay for the nurse and grant a stipend as opposed to a prep.

–Katie explained the Non-Classroom and Classroom changes.  The document showed the average class size and any changes that would occur.  She reviewed the courses and indicated where the cuts would be in sections.

–Top part of the document represents savings of over $70,000 and the bottom portion shows savings of over $581,000.

–Stan asked about Biotech—Katie said it is listed in Science.  Marcus said he and Stan would meet about this.

 

–Patrick suggested meeting about this again tomorrow during 4°.

–Ben asked the group if this seems like something that has happened before.  Discussion followed about past years and that last year the fact that Scenario B was bad.  The year before that, Joseph indicated that VPA lost 2 positions.  For next year VPA is losing 15% while the rest of the school is losing 7%.

–Marcus said that when cuts happen it is often necessary to go to the minimums.  The VPA graduation requirement is 1 course for one year.

–Graduation requirements are now aligned to the A – G requirements—language, math and science requirements have gone up.  Katie pointed out that the district graduation requirements have changed—not the state’s requirements, but the district’s.

–Patrick asked if we have pushed back to the district about the effects.

–Marcus brought up the remedial courses and how they do not count for graduation.

 

–Kathleen asked about ROTC.  Marcus gave the history of this area and talked about the fact that we were on probation for the program as we only had one instructor.  Stan mentioned that ROTC pays for one position if we have it.  The Army is now requiring the ROTC teachers to have a PE credential which will take place in several years.

–Those students who double up in AP classes bring the school more money.

–Michelle brought up the issue of larger class sizes.  She is concerned that the advanced classes are the smaller ones and the under served students are in the larger classes.

–Michelle asked about class sizes with AP and Academy classes.

–Nancy said that the English classes for AoHT have 39 students.  AoIT has lots of requests to be in this program.

 

–Patrick wanted to discuss the Non-Personnel area.  Katie explained that the 2% would cover school-wide supplies, but departments would get nothing to very little.  David said that would impact all of the life science classes with labs.  English would not be able to order novels.

–Patrick asked Joseph about his budget.  Prop H was discussed.

–Ben said he felt the question is will all departments be willing to give up supplies to cover a 1.0 FTE, and if so, what department would have that 1.0 teacher.

 

–Discussion followed about state adopted textbooks and who pays and what happens when books are lost.  David and Denise told of the textbook inventory checks by the district.

 

–Marti discussed Math Department finances.  She said they need paper, ink and an Excel program.

–Michelle discussed the benefits of having 2 AVID teachers.

–Ethan asked about the rationale of choosing ROTC over 1.0 FTE in PE.  Marcus said the program is popular, a political issue and financially is a wash over having more sections of PE.

–Patrick asked about class sizes in ROTC.  Nancy said we cannot require students to take ROTC.

–The Army requires 100 students enrolled to continue ROTC.

–Patrick mentioned the union contract and what comes up when teachers are reassigned.  Katie asked about the money.  Patrick said we should look into all of this.

–Patrick congratulated everyone who has worked on this budget.  Katie mentioned that she was sad over this.

–Michelle asked about with the reduction of students, why are we adding a counselor and cutting teachers?

–Nancy said this is a result of continued parent complaints about their students not being able to be seen by a counselor.  This is coming from the students and the parents.

–Nancy said our current enrollment is 2070.

–PTSA and Community Meetings were the source of the parent and student complaints about not being able to see counselors.

–Joseph mentioned some department chairs would resign if the district removed the department head period and offered a stipend; many department chairs might resign.

–Ben said we should rerun this with no AP preps and no Department Head periods.

–Stan said with the superintendent’s zone, we could lose 10 teachers.

–Michelle said many schools run Yearbook and Journalism as after school activities.

–Journalism is in English; Yearbook is an elective that meets a G requirement.

–Patrick said Yearbook/Journalism, PE/ROTC, Counselor and supplies are important issues.

–Katie explained the financial issue of funding for the nurse.

–The Librarian funding would decrease next year.

 

–Ray felt Peer Resource is an important program here for Special Ed.  Jessica said the PRC classes are small, so maybe combining them into 2 sections would be financially good.

 

Marcus asked everyone to digest this information and make plans for arguments to the SSC.  We will meet again tomorrow during 4th period.

 

Meeting adjourned at 12:15pm.

X  Minutes of the previous meeting approved

 

Decision Made/Issues Reviewed

I.  Call to Order

– M. Lau-Smith called the meeting to order at 3:44 pm.  There were nine elected members present; a quorum was established.

 

II.  Approval of 1/11/2012 Meeting Minutes

– M. Blacksher moved to approve the 1/11/2012 minutes as presented.  J. Ring seconded and the motion was carried unanimously.

 

III.  New Business

1.  BSC Working Group Updates

– M. Lau-Smith went over her notes from the BSCWG meeting on January 25, 2012.  The attendees were as follows:  M. Blacksher, T. Payne, J. Chau, D. Page, J. Ring, C. Siegel, M. Lau-Smith, P. Delaney.

– The SSC members that were at the BSCWG meeting felt that the meeting wasn’t too long and that it was productive.

– The members decided to have the next BSCWG meeting on Thursday, February 16, which should give the admin ample time to gather data from different sources.  T. Payne will have the student survey results aggregated by then.  G. Tom also reminded the admin that the feedback gathered at the January PTSA meeting could be incorporated.

– M. Blacksher held a discussion about the school priorities at the last leadership team meeting. The team thought that there were too many priorities for the school to work on in such a short time.  They requested that the list be narrowed down to manageable three or four priorities.

– The science department felt that the list of priorities was too broad.  The department teachers didn’t understand why they were asked to discuss it and if they did talk about it, how would their input be used.  W. Smith invited T. Payne to come to one of their meetings, so he could provide guidance on the exercise and answer questions.

– The math department had a different take.  Their main concern was that they would rather use measuring tools that the school had a lot of input instead of using something that was regulated by the district.

– One of the priorities is for the class of 2014 and thereafter to fulfill the A-G requirements when they graduate.  The site council worried how the EL students would be able to accomplish this stipulation.  One member suggested using the current 9th and 10th grades as the baseline to see how on track these students are in meeting it.  T. Payne shared that 60% met the A-G requirements and there was 14% difference between male and female students.

– M. Lau-Smith emphasized that the school should use positive data such as number of students have joined clubs, have done sports, have participated in elections, to enhance the school climate rather than using negative ones like suspension rate.

– Someone questioned how these priorities meshed with the WASC recommendations.  M. Lau-Smith said she would need to review the WASC report to see how the two could be tied together.

 

 

2.  March Meeting Date

– At a previous meeting, some SSC members felt that the March meeting might need to be pushed back a week in order to give people extra time to gather input and data.  But that was no longer necessary, so the March meeting will be on the 14th as planned.

 

3.  SSC Summit

– Annually, the District sponsors the SSC School Planning Summit on a Saturday to:

1.   Share information about Balanced Scorecard/Single Plan for Student Achievement and school site funding allocations; and 2.  Provide members of our school communities with information to assess current program, identify strategies for improvement, align fiscal resources, engage partners, and chart course of actions.

– This year the event will be held on Saturday, February 12 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm at Everett Middle School.  The following members have agreed to attend:  M. Blacksher, Mele Lau-Smith, T. Payne, J. Ring, C. Siegel.

 

 

IV.  Old Business

– There were no agenda items under Old Business.

 

 

W. Smith moved to adjourn the meeting.  M. Blacksher seconded and the meeting was adjourned at 4:22 pm.
