Department Heads/Leadership Meeting Minutes – February 24, 2015

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

2/24/15

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 11:20am.

 

I.          Computer Lab

–Michelle M. asked about the hours for the computer lab. Marcus said 7am – 5pm.

 

II.         Wellness Staff Survey

–Michelle F. mentioned this survey is done every other year.  It is all computerized now. The goal is 80% of the staff should complete this.  There is a raffle for a $15 Safeway card.  She is asking for feedback on the best way to do this.  Lisa suggested completing it in department meetings.  It takes 10 minutes and is due sometime in May.

–Lisa said she could organize the paras to complete it on an early release day.

–Michelle will send out the link to the whole faculty.

 

III.       Budget

–Marcus said we saw a $700,000 increase in the budget for next year, but due to the raises this increase just covers all of the raises in all of the positions.  The bottom line is an $80,000 increase, not even enough for 1 teaching position.

–Ethan mentioned the cost of district teachers on special assignment totaling about $3 million dollars taking funds away from the students.  These teachers work from the special assignment budget.  Susan indicated these funds are usually taken from grant funds.  She said this is an out of credential teaching funding.  The issue is the way this district spends the money they get from the state.

–Marcus said he is concerned about security aides, Peer Resources and JROTC.

–Nancy said the district is encouraging us to offer an Ethnic Studies class to 9th graders next year.

–Joseph asked what class 9th graders would drop to take this class.  It could be Social Studies or VAPA.

 

–1975 students is the allocation for the fall.  This will include a decrease in ELLs.  We should have about 388 ELLs next fall.

–Joseph asked how many of the 45 allocated ELLs have arrived.

–Marcus said the good news is we won’t have to do any cutting.  We may have to do some adjusting.  He said we will present this to the SSC at tomorrow’s meeting.

 

–Susan asked if there has been any talk about closing under enrolled high schools.  Marcus said there is always talk of that, but nothing has happened so far.

 

IV.        Miscellaneous

–Stephen Emmi said the counseling office will be visiting Social Studies classes next week.

–Marcus congratulated Nancy who received a 3-year contract from the district.

–We also got the word that Stephen Emmi will be voted in at the SSC meeting tomorrow.

–Kathleen mentioned those who just passed the National Boards and we have 10-15 on staff who have passed the National Boards.

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:42am.

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting Minutes – February 17, 2015

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

2/17/15

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 11:20am.

 

I.          Department Head Budget Priorities

–Marcus said we would get next year’s budget on Monday.  The PTSA meets tonight for budget priorities.  He will meet with ELAC next week.  These will be the two community meetings.  He will give the budget to the SSC next week.

–Marcus said the budget would be based on a class size of 33.  He is not sure what that means.

–Marcus said we have small class sizes in some areas and this could affect the budget.

–Marcus wants feedback on what the departments need.  What are our priorities?

 

–Lisa will run the community meeting tonight with the PTSA.  He put up a sheet detailing the items at the meeting.  He explained the agenda.  He explained the requests of the PTSA, current priorities—class size, Academy pathways, electives, co-teaching, and newcomers.  Central Office areas identified:  CAHSEE, Attendance, A-G grad track, Suspensions, G.P.A.  The district wants us to improve in these areas.

–Marcus said we will have to increase the school-wide budget.

 

–Marcus asked for discussion or other priorities.

–Lauren wanted to add Special Programs to Academies and Pathways—AVID, Chinese Immersion.

–Marcus said he would get some information on how many students are taking more than one class in specific areas.

 

II.         Co-Teaching Placements 2015/16

–Stephen Jackson talked about feedback from this year.  Some teachers felt that had too many students with IEPs.  In Special Ed, Case Managers will look at each student and their schedules.  Perhaps some of these students do not need co-teachers.  They will analyze all of their students.  They will collect the data, and then present this to the general ed teachers.  He asked if there is anything else his department can do.

–Michelle mentioned that some of her classes have large numbers of students with IEPs and this can be overwhelming for the teachers.

–Susan said there is a special committee working with this issue in union bargaining.

–Registration will be during the first 2 weeks of March.

–February 27th during lunch will be the Academy & Pathway Fair.

–Marcus said if anyone is proposing a course, please let admin know right away.

 

III.       AP Course Registration

–Mat said this is a good time to recruit for AP classes— via G-House TV, lunchtime.  Mat asked if counselors need a checklist for the courses.  Mat will email this information to Stephen Emmi.  Spreadsheets will be available for department heads to edit.

–Stephen Emmi said students know if they are being recommended for an AP class.

–Kathleen said there were no ELL students in AP language courses at this time.  They should be proficient in English before signing up for AP courses.

 

 

IV.        Timely Arrangements for Substitutes

–Please remind your teachers to plan ahead of time for teachers who know they will be absent.  Please contact subs and make arrangements ahead of time.

 

V.         Computer Cart Sign-up

–Alicia mentioned some teachers had signed up for 10 days straight with the computer cart.  She mentioned the protocol and it does not seem to be the same as the labs.

–Lisa said it should be the same and she will edit the information.

–Alicia asked how many days in a row can a teacher sign up for the computer carts?  Lisa will clarify this.  Doug explained a situation with the math department and the new and old carts.  He also said his department shared the sign up of the cart, but one person signed out the carts for the whole department.

–Lisa talked about testing and the use of the carts and prep for testing.

–Lisa reminded teachers not to send substitutes to the computer lab when they are absent.  Lisa needs to approve reoccurring reservations.

–Marcus asked Lisa to send out an email detailing the reservation policies.

 

VI.        Senior Awards

–Marcus mentioned our last discussion about the Move-Up Assembly.  We will have a Move-Up Celebration this year and the ASB officers will do the “moving.”  This will turn into a carnival and food fest.

–Senior Awards Dinner—kids who are getting an award will be invited.  It will be in the gym with a catered dinner.  This will recognize academics as well as other awards.  She asked the group to brainstorm awards.

Beating the Odds Award.  LATA and TACT Scholarships, SF Achievers.  Most improved award.  Citizenship Award, Community Service Award (in and outside the Galileo community).

–Doug asked if this should be within departments.  Healthy Choice Award, Newcomer of the Year; Student Performance Award;  Teacher Pop Pole for students;

Marc suggested Most Creative Award Outside the Classroom;  Creativity Award;.

 

–Joseph said he would miss the ceremony at Move-up with the band and orchestra.  Marcus said this could still happen at the celebration.

 

VII.      Miscellaneous

–Susan sent an email to students and their parents about immunizations.  The box to put the responses in is in the Counseling Office.  Autodialer will go out today.  Deadline is March 1, 2015.  Susan explained the guidelines.

 

Meeting adjourned at 12:10pm.

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting Minutes – February 10, 2015

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

2/10/15

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 11:20am.

 

I.          Emergency Drills

–Nancy said that we need to get back to practicing the drills.  She said we will have one this month.  She asked the group for feedback on the last drills last semester.

–The group preferred the last week of February.

–Michelle asked about the Healthy Kids Survey and when it will be given—either a Tuesday or Friday of the last week of February.

–Alan said there is a tech event that Friday (27th).

–Nancy suggested Monday, February 23, 2015.  This will be a fire drill.

 

II.         Drink Tap Assembly

–Friday, March 6, 2015.  It will be an invitational assembly using the filling stations.  Encourage your teachers to attend.

–Marcus said we have one in the cafeteria and we may get one more.  Every student who comes will be given the Hetch-Hetchy water bottle.  Friday, March 6th 11:45 am – 112:20pm is the time scheduled.

–Discussion followed about how many bottles we have left and how to distribute them.

–Marcus suggested giving students who attend the assembly a ticket and then they can turn in the ticket for a bottle.

–David asked how often the filter will be replaced.

 

III.       AP Test Administration & Sign-Up

–Doug mentioned a plan Stephen Emmi was working on and that would be to have all students taking the tests to sign up at the same time and pay at that time.

–He mentioned Washington uses an AP Coordinator (.2) and he was paid for collecting the funds.  Lowell funds a person to do all AP activities.

–Doug says teachers are walking around with lots of money and what happens if someone steals the money?

–Marcus said the money should be turned in to the AP Coordinator.

–David asked what happens if students don’t qualify for a reduced rate, what happens if they don’t sign up for the test? Nancy said she used to handle those cases.  A statement from the parents should qualify a student for the reduced rate.

–Doug told the group how he handles it.

–Marcus said everyone enrolled in the AP courses should take the tests.

–Information is due March 2nd.

–Stephen Emmi clarified the $5 fee and the form they must fill out.  He mentioned we are no longer getting information on free and reduced price lunch.

Classes will visit the counseling office as a group on a pre-arranged date to sign-up and pay.

 

IV.        Criteria for Selecting Teachers to Assess IWA (Integrated Writing Assessment)

–This is given to 9th graders.  The purpose is to calibrate writing.  Last year all 9th grade English teachers but one went.  This year AP teachers with writing will be the ones to participate in this.  We will go through each department.

–Michelle said this test is the one that looks the most like the Smarter Balance which students take in the 11th grade.  Topics in the test are science, social science, and not necessarily novels.

 

V.         Feedback from CLRP Presentation

–Marcus asked for feedback from the group.

–Mat asked about a subject like math.

–Doug has not found helpful information from this activity.

–Marcus said one strategy for Math is “Get out of your seat.”  He demonstrated this activity.  We need to address many types of learners.

–Marcus said the next area would be participation points to engage all students.

 

VI.        Miscellaneous

–Stephen Jackson mentioned an email he sent to the group about “At a Glance Documents.”  He mentioned they are all on Google Drive.  You can view a list of students who have IEPs and can see basic information about the students.  He mentioned the documents will be updated after an IEP.

 

–Lauren distributed a calendar with Senior Activities in May.  She discussed the events on the calendar.

–Lauren will ask for volunteers to read names at graduation.

–Forms for department honors will be distributed later this week.  Deadline will most likely be mid-March.

–Students nominated for honors will be checked by the Deans’ Office for cheating referrals.

 

Meeting adjourned at 12:05pm.
