Leadership Team/Department Head Meeting Minutes 10/11/12

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

10/11/12

 

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 10:10am.

 

Leadership Team

 

I.          Winter Assembly Date

–Joseph talked about the suggestions of dates for the Winter Assembly.  He sent a survey to the staff and he found 45% wanted it to be Dec. 2st and 40% wanted the last day of “Dead Week”—Dec. 14th.  He felt there would be more attendance at the Assembly if we did it Dec. 14th and run 2 assemblies.  If we did it on Dec. 21st we would probably just have 1 assembly.

–Science does not want to give up teaching time, so David said that his department wants Dec. 21st.

–Stan said that many students do not want to come on Dec. 21st.  Even performers may not show up.

 

–Stan asked about the Holiday Door Decorating Contest.  He suggested we reinstate it.  He asked for an opinion from the group.  He suggested each member check with their departments.  The last several times we had the contest there was little participation.

–Ray suggested that anyone could enter, not just homeroom door decorating.

 

II.         Assembly Bell Schedule

–Doug distributed options for a new assembly schedule.  He explained the 5 options by moving time around so that the afternoon classes were not 10 minutes longer than the morning classes.

-Option 1 has all classes at 50 minutes, except 3rd.  We need to keep lunch from being too late for the cafeteria workers.

–Option 2 has all lunch between the assemblies.  This is problematic for those leading groups.  This option is out.

–Option 3 shortens the 2nd assembly by 5 minutes.

–Option 4 has all classes 50 minutes and lunch is shortened 5 minutes.

–Option 5 and 6—5 lunch is 40 minutes and 6 lunch is 50 minutes.

–Doug felt Option 1 is the best choice.

–Stan expressed concern if the assemblies go over time.  We cannot reduce lunch to less than 40 minutes.

–Lisa asked why the assembly is 4th period.  One answer is those in charge have 4th period prep, and 4th period is right before lunch.

 

–Marcus asked for the next steps.  David suggested it go to the departments for their input.

 

III.       Electronic Sign-In

–Doug said he would like to bring this up as mornings are rushed and teachers need time to get set up before 8am.  He suggested an electronic sign-in for teachers once they arrive in their rooms.

–Marcus said he would think about it.

–Doug said he could make it so that they say where they are when they sign in.

–Nancy asked if Bettie would be able to see easily which rooms are not covered.

–Ray asked if it is that hard to come in and sign-in in the office.

–Leah said it would be complicated to have Bettie look at the computer and the sign-in book.

–Doug explained that many teachers come in on the other side of the building and it is extra time to come to the Main Office and sign-in.

–Discussion followed.

–Stan talked about when he injured his back and how he did it.

–Joseph would like to see something that was a card swipe several places in the building. David said there were logistical issues with this.  He suggested a spreadsheet where everyone could put their initials in.

–Marcus said the administration would get back to the group.

 

IV.        Parking Enhancements

–Doug suggested a parabolic mirror, which would help see if there are parking places available and we could see students coming.

–He also suggested that the gate have an AA2 key on it so that teachers could go in and out.

–Ethan said it is illegal to have the area locked.

–Doug suggested a push bar to get out.

–Katie said that area is locked during the school day so that outside visitors cannot enter that way.  Rebecca opens it at lunchtime for access to the field.

–Marcus said we would do a little research.  The parabolic mirror is a good idea.

–Ethan said we need 2 of them.

–Katie asked Doug to find online what we need and she will make it work.

 

–Stan addressed the problems that happen with how people park and also on game days people come and block others in.

–Nancy said they would talk to security and have them help.

 

V.         Master Schedule

–Nancy said she was called downtown yesterday to learn about Synergy, which will be the new SIS.  It will begin in the summer, but training will be in the Spring.  Deadlines will be moved up to earlier dates and this will make for a smoother transition in Fall 2014 and schedules would be set by May 30th.  Teachers going off for summer break would know what they are teaching exactly in the fall.

–Nancy spoke of dates the district would use for enrollment as well as how many of each group of students we would have.

–We would create on the old SIS system and then the district will convert to Synergy.

–Questions followed—concerning IT support, why can’t we build on Synergy, etc.

–Doug asked about the advantages of Synergy.  Nancy said the system will list ideal schedules and Nancy won’t have to figure it out.  It will have online attendance now so there will be no more attendance strips.

–There will be phone applications

–Katie said that SIS is a “stands alone” system used only by SFUSD.

–Katie also said Synergy is also a company that is nation wide.

–David said it is web based and teachers have more access to records.  Teachers would see immediately who was absent, excused, etc.

–Nancy said it is like a college system and students will be able to register for classes on line.  San Diego and Long Beach School Districts use Synergy. Those districts are 3 times as large as SFUSD.

–One concern is that not every classroom has a computer, so attendance could be an issue.  The union is looking into this.

–Nancy is willing to start early.

–Michelle asked how this would affect the counselors when they come into the classrooms to register students.

–Doug said we would be making placement decisions based on just the fall classes.

–Members asked about training and when it would happen.

–Michelle said that there would still be mass changes in the Fall.

–Nancy said this is a huge transition but one that needs to happen.  Nancy said they have been planning this for 2-3 years.

–David went to selection meetings on this and he said the fast transition is the best.

 

VI.        College Counselor

–We are going to get a counselor to help with those students who are in the middle.  This is being paid for with extra money from the district.  His name is Donald Harper.  He will make sure they are focused.  He will focus on Seniors and Juniors and then in the Spring with the lower classmen.

–Stan explained the financing that the SSC authorized.

–Katie said this is a Classified Position and not a counselor.

–This counselor will be working with targeted students.

 

Department Head Agenda

 

I.          CFAs

–October 31st will be CLA, CFA and Data Analysis for CPT.

–Marcus said he had Social Studies and World Languages.  He is waiting for the others.  Please email or turn in paper assessments to Lisa.

–Every teacher should be giving some form of CFA’s between now and October 31st—Stan said their CFAs were done as the Final Exam.

–David said they agreed to just give the exam knowing that some of the students will not know all of the information.

–Department discussions will happen on October 31st.

–Part I was to make the assessments.  Part II will involve Data Director.

–Marcus gave a demonstration of Data Director.

–Leah asked how much time they would get to enter data.  David said last year the administration was going to do it for the teachers.  Marcus said he could do it.

–Joseph asked about VPA and PE where the assessments are not multiple-choice questions.  Lisa will look into it.

–Marcus said he inputted a 30-question test in 13 minutes.

–Marcus explained the scanning process.

 

II.         Back to School Night

–It is tonight and Nancy said she has not heard from too many who can’t come.

–Michelle wanted to know if there would be an announcement at the end of 6th period for parents to get the report cards.

–Nancy said parents will register, fill out lunch applications, tour the Resource Fair, then go to the Auditorium, then Classroom Visits, then the Report Cards.  There are student helpers.  Report Cards will be given out in the Van Ness Gym.

–Resource Fair Tables will be in the Main Hallway.

–School Loop training will be in 260.

 

III.       College Fair

–October 12th.  Seniors are expected to go and will be back 5th period.

–Joseph asked if Seniors are excused tomorrow.  They need a Field Trip Form.

–A list of students who are not going will be given out tomorrow.

 

IV.        PSAT

–October 17th.  All 10th graders and 60 11th graders.

–Michelle said they are giving their CLA’s next week and this is an issue.  They like to do it on a block day.

–Lisa can get an extension on the CLA.

–Stan has a concern about using his room on 10/17 for testing, when he had a lab planned.  Nancy said most of his students would be taking the PSAT.

–Nancy said it was challenging scheduling the rooms.

 

V.         Peer Observations

–The UBC said they would be interested in bringing these back.  She asked everyone to think about who they would like to observe, etc.  Lisa passed around a sign-up sheet. She hoped the newer teachers could observe some of the more experienced teachers.

–Lisa asked them to take this to their department meetings.

–Lisa brought some examples of the tools for Peer Observations and she passed them out.  She wants input from the group.

–David said a mini National Teaching Standards would be helpful.

–Joseph suggested printing it on legal size paper with the tear off on the top.

–Michelle discussed the English Dept. form that the administration uses.

–Stan asked if it was required that everyone use the same form.

–The administration will not see what the teachers write to each other.

–What did you like? What can I do better? and What I didn’t like are 3 areas Joseph mentioned.

–Michelle suggested keeping criticism or dislikes off the form.

–Doug asked if the Math Dept. could devise a form and the answer is Yes as long as there is a tear-off portion at the top.

–Lisa distributed more information for members to check.

 

–District and state all have different definitions for accommodations and modifications.

–CMA is considered a modified exam.  Katie has the clarifications

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:45am.

Leadership Team/Department Head Meeting Minutes – September 27, 2012

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

9/27/12

 

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 10:10am.

 

Leadership Team

 

I.          Academic Honesty

–Marcus said we are missing some members, so we will table this until our next meeting.

 

II.         Vending Machines

–Marcus said money is tight this year.  The Senior Class needs to raise $14,000 for graduation.  Mr. Wing would like to have a public vending machine.  The administration would like to have a vending machine.  Drinks for ASB and snacks for the administration are the focus.

–David asked where they would be.  We need to place them where students would not be able to use them during class.  Marcus felt there was a space outside by Room 210.  Nancy suggested by the Deans’ Office.

–Ethan asked if this could be opened up to ROTC, PE, music, etc.

–Joseph asked who the supervisors would be—counting money, depositing money, unjamming the machines, stocking the machines, etc.

–Jessica said there are only a few vendors we can use due to student nutrition guidelines.  We have to follow the guidelines, and we can only use-approved foods.

These foods and machines are listed on the SFUSD website under Student Nutrition.

–Jessica said that they may not be open during lunchtime as that would conflict with the cafeteria.

–Ethan will look into private sponsorship from outside vendors.

 

III.       Lunch Forms

–Marcus would like a way to get more students to fill out the applications.  This will bring us more money.

–Suggestions made to bring this up at Back to School Night.  Nancy said there are many advantages besides the food—fee waivers for SAT, AP exams, etc.

–Jessica asked about those who do not qualify.  She also asked about the competition Karin Lau did a few years ago with the homeroom competition and the winner having a pizza party.

–Ethan said that PE would take this on.  They do a Field Trip Permission Slip that is required.  So he could require the Lunch Form as well.

–Both the paper form and the online form have a quick check for “Not Eligible.”

–Deadline for this year has already passed.

–Nancy said it might be possible to hand the form out at Back to School Night.

–David suggested giving them out to 8th grade parents in the Spring.  This would only work if the state has the forms ready.

 

IV.        PSAT

–October 17th in the morning.  This is a mandatory test for all 10th graders.  There are 60 slots for 11th and 12th graders.  The reason the students have to take it here at school is the district wants to increase our SAT scores and some students cannot afford the prep sessions.

 

V.         Back to School Night

–October 11th from 5pm-8pm.  Faculty only needs to be here for what they are responsible for.  For the Resource Fair, use student representatives. This activity will be around the auditorium perimeter.  This is 5pm-5:25pm.  Anybody can participate.

–Patrick said there might be better teacher participation if there were 2 Early Release days for teachers.

–Day before is the Early Release Day, so teachers can leave at 2:10pm.

–Joseph said that he is glad that we are doing this in the 10th week of the school and passing out report cards.  He believes we will get a big turn out and he likes the fact that the report cards will be delivered at the end of the event.

–A postcard to families is going out today.  On this notice, there was no agenda listed.

–Joseph asked if other schools were doing this the same week as we are.  Marcus said that most of the schools have already done this.

–Marcus asked the Department Heads to encourage all teachers to attend.  If any teachers cannot attend, please arrange coverage.  Nancy would like to know which teachers will not be present.

 

VI.        Schedule Changes

–There are a handful of schedule changes for the next grading period.  After School Loop closes on Wednesday we will place those changes.

–Department Heads should give a list of changes to Nancy by Monday.

–Ethan asked if he would get a print out of grades before October11th for athletic eligibility.

 

VII.      Data Report

–Marcus passed out the API over view.  This has last year’s results and this year’s results.  We will do a data review at next Wednesday’s faculty meeting.

–Marcus asked for feedback.

–We started out at 780, with a target of 785 and we went to 791.  Our target is 796 this year.

–In 2010 year, we are 7 3, 3 out of 10 in similar schools.  In 2011 we are a 5—a good gain.

–Nancy said more lunch forms we have will help with the similar schools rank.

–Joseph talked about the 13 points the English Language Learners achieved.

–Marcus mentioned the Latino Students and the huge accomplishment they achieved.  They went up 50 points.

–Nancy said there is a Latino support club that came from the Latino Club.  We have more Latino students in AP class than we have had in the past.

–Lauren said everyone went up, except Asian students stayed the same and students with disabilities did not go up.

–Marcus said we did very well with our White students.

–Patrick asked about gender changes over the years.  Nancy said we have more females than in the past.

–David felt that when the population shifts, it does affect the test scores.

–Nancy gave information on which programs have more males or females.

–Joseph asked about the number 100 for group size.  Marcus said the group size is 100 or 10% of population and that becomes significant.

–David mentioned a past practice of selecting 2 low scoring students and focusing on them.  He asked if this had any effect.  We have since stopped doing this.

–Patrick said he felt Loan Ly has been a great articulator for the Asian students who are going un-served.  These students know how to slide.  David mentioned a group of students he saw yesterday that are not in class, but not causing trouble—the one he saw was all male ELD students.

–Patrick suggested a Vietnamese class.

 

VIII.     Emergency Procedures Week

–The Great California Shakeout is Thursday, October 18th between 8:30am and 9:00am.  We will miss the 10:18am siren.  We are moving the time up due to the ELD Picnic and Activity.

–We will duck and cover, then evacuate to the football field.

–Katie would like to do a Lock Down, a Fire/Bomb Drill that same week.  All the drills will involve evacuation.  David said it would be good practice for lining up on the field.

–Fire and Bomb are virtually the same.  We evacuate for both and kids could be dismissed to their parents or not.

–Katie would like to do Monday and Tuesday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

 

IX.        Administrative Protocol for Sharing Information

–Mat mentioned a threat that happened this week and he has heard about students making a threat on the school, and the FBI getting involved.  His department would like to know the information is passed to the faculty.

–Stan said the teachers who had the students were told.  The administration did not want the kids to have notoriety from other students.  The students were suspended.

 

Department Head Agenda

 

I.          Textbook Accountability

–David said the book problems in his department, AP Biology and Physiology, involved books that were misplaced or borrowed.  In general we all try to do the best job we can.

–Administration wants to continue the process as it has been done in the past.  The inventory will continue, probably electronically.

–Joseph said we will have textbook loss no matter what system we have.  There are things we cannot control.

–Marcus said in the past Central Office would help with this, but now they are putting it back to the schools.

–David said in the past every 5 years new textbooks were adopted.  This has not happened and some of them are 10 years old.  The old textbooks are no longer available for purchase.

–Marcus suggested Department Heads press this issue in their district meetings.

–Kathleen gives points in her department for cleaning out lockers and finding books.

 

II.         CLA Updates

–Marcus said we are going to continue to meet the window and hope everyone is giving some kind of Common Formative Assessment in the time frame.  We want to get it into Data Director.  Goal is for teachers to have discussions around CFAs.

–Marcus said they would use Social Studies as the pilot.

 

III.       Miscellaneous

–Kathleen asked about truancy and who should be notified.  Nancy said to notify the counselor.

–Kathleen said they are starting their tutoring program and she passed out information about this program.

–David offered clarification on the science class names.

 

–Katie said the departments will get some money.  We have 50 more students and funds will come to WSF, SCE and LEP.

–David discussed the needs of each department and they are all different.  He wanted to bring this up to the departments to see what they need, and then spread out the extra funds.

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:30am.

 

9/25/12 Meeting Minutes

SAN FRANCISCO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

Galileo Academy of Science and Technology

1150 Francisco Street, San Francisco, CA  94109

Room 210 at 3:30 P.M.

Location and Time of Meeting

 

School Site Council Meeting-September 25, 2012

Present:
Marcus Blackshur, Nancy Lambert-Campbell, Anna Mai, Jessica Colvin, Patrick Delaney, Jonathan Ring, Stan DeBella, Lisa Warnke, Woodrow Smith, Doug Page, Sharon Gray, Nicole Torres, Mele Lau-Smith, Katie Pringle

A quorum was established for the meeting to begin.

SY 12-13 Budget Discussion:

Overview of budget documents (attached).

Update Fall final numbers:
• Received more funds in weighted student formula due to additional students.
• Received less in AP funding as the District is basing the number of AP exams on the prior year number and using the non-contractractual formulat.
• More funds in categorical funding for SCE and LEP. The formulat for SCE and LEP funding is based on a snapshot count from the Spring. It has not been updated with Fall numbers.
• Prop H Arts and PE funds reduced somewhat
• The final Fall budget has less of a deficit than the budget that was developed in the Spring. In the Spring the deficit between FY 11-12 and FY 12-13 was about $700,000. Based on the final Fall budget, the reduction from SY 11-12 and SY 12-13 is $427,311.

Discussion on priorities to allocated additional funds for SY 12-13:

• Presentation from Jessica Colvin on using some of the additional funds to fund counselor in Wellness Center. Discussion: These funds could come from ELP funds. Since Kathleen Golata was not present, the SSC noted that the discussion of ELP funds is at the purview of the ELAC and the SSC would recommend to ELAC to use some of the funds for the Wellness Center counselor.
• The non-personnel budget is very small. Recommendation for additional funds be allocated to non-personnel budget.
• Athletic Department and VAPA will decide on reallocation of Prop H and Arts funds.

Discussion of Proposals before the SSC:

• Tutoring program – LEP – K Golata – ELAC
• Additional Counselor for the Wellness Center– LEP funds
• Additional Teacher to provide course for 11th grade students with TA class – WSF funds
• 1 FTE – Intervention Sp/College career counselor – SCE funds
• Increase K.Lau to administrative position – SCE funds
• School supplies/Lab supplies – WSF funds
• Extended hours/prep for standardized test proctor – WSF

The SSC made the following recommendation:

The funds from WSF allocated to non-personnel budget
1 FTE Intervention Specialist/College Career funded with SCE funds. Balance of SCE funds allocated to non-personnel
Recommend to ELAC that portion of LEP funds be allocation to Wellness Center counseling position.

S. DeBella put a motion forth to adopt the above recommendations. P.Delaney seconded the motion.

Motion passed unanimously.

Future Discussion for SSC:

Review funding priorities and develop funding allocation standard. For example, a certain percentage of funds go to non-personnel categories, personnel, etc.

Next SSC meeting to review and approve the Fall final budget was scheduled for Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 3:30 pm.

Meeting adjourned.

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting Minutes – September 13, 2012

GALILEO ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Leadership Team/Department Heads Meeting

 

9/13/12

 

 

Marcus called the meeting to order at 10:10am.

 

Leadership Team

 

I.          School-Wide Academic Honesty Policy

–Marcus asked other district principals for their policies.  He felt the Balboa policy was the most comprehensive.  He distributed other schools’ policies as well so that all departments could read them and discuss them.  Marcus asked everyone to take this to their departments for discussion regarding additions, deletions, etc.  The goal is to have a school-wide policy for academic honesty.  We will revisit this at the next meeting.

–Marcus said the Deans would also like to be involved in this.

 

II.         Textbook Accountability

–Marcus asked everyone to present how their department is tracking textbooks and holding teachers and students accountable.

–David said they use the orange lost book cards.  They do a count at the end of the year.  He felt that teachers should track their own books and be accountable.  Everyone has access to the book room.  Some teachers keep their books in their rooms.

–Kathleen has a Textbook Record Sheet with the numbers on the sheet.  They do an inventory at the end of the year.  They use the orange lost book cards.  All books are kept in the book room and all teachers have access.

–Mat said his teachers use the book numbers and the orange cards. Some are in the bookroom and some are in classrooms.

–Ethan said the books are in the Fitness Lab and the teachers rotate.  They check books out to the students.

–Joseph said they do not have a state approved textbook.  If students want to take guitars home, they fill out an orange book card.  His art classes do not have books.

–Ray said for Special Ed the books are in the classroom.  If students check books out, the teacher fills out a sheet.  They have 15 books for each class.

–Michelle said they have textbooks and novels.  Teachers keep textbooks in their rooms.  Very few teachers use the textbooks.  They mostly use the novels.  The novels have numbers and are assigned to students.  Lost book numbers are sent to Connie in an electronic form.

–Michelle said they used to have a budget to replace novels.  In the past the teacher collected the money and replaced the novels.  They have stopped doing that now.

–Doug said teachers can keep books over the summer in a locked cabinet in their rooms.  Some teachers use the orange lost book cards.  Some teacher keep track electronically.  For transfer students from one class to another the teachers exchange the book numbers.

–Leah said they use the orange lost book cards for the textbooks.  For the novels the teachers keep track.

–Science and math had textbook needs this year.  Michelle said her department signs up ahead of time for the novels.  Due to higher class sizes, some of the teachers cannot teach the novels they want to, due to lack of books.

–Marcus mentioned a small amount of money in the lost textbook fund.  Let him know if you have needs.

–Marcus talked of a former school that was moving towards a central system that had a barcode system initiated by the librarian.

–David spoke of a system he experienced at another school.  All teachers had a scanner and a central person in charge of the books.  He feels a digital system will work.  Every book must have a bar code and be added to a database.  This database should be linked up to SIS.  School Loop does not have this capacity.

 

–Marcus will ask other principles.  We are getting pda’s donated to us.  This is like a personal computer you can hold in your hand.

–Michelle said at one time the English Department had a book clerk who checked the books in and out

–Lisa said that perhaps there could be a system that operates like the library system.

–Patrick said this is a statement by the district in the Librarian Job Description indicating this is not part of the Librarian’s duties.

–Katie discussed her work in the math and science department book rooms.  She feels the departments must have their own book storage areas and the accountability should be with each department.

–Michelle mentioned the Senior Sign-Out process and wondered if we could do this each year with each grade.  Marcus said the big deal for seniors is graduation.

–Many students who transfer do not return the books.  Marcus said it is against the law to withhold a student’s cum folder.

–Marcus said the district is putting a lot of pressure on each department to save money and keep track of the resources.

 

III.       7-Step Schedule Change Process

–Mat said there are many students attempting to leave AP classes as they say the classes are too hard.  He said Barry Barbour has been working with Mat.  The recommendation is to move from AP to regular, not Honors, as students should not get their second choice.  He mentioned students bringing in their parents to put pressure on the teacher.  Mat asked for administration back up.

–Katie said in the Spring they look at course requests and then we build the Master Schedule around the requests.

–Stan asked what the time frame is for the 7 Step Process.  Lauren said often students request a change from one class and that will affect all their classes.

–Most members like the process.

–Patrick said the AP issue is also contractual—if a class drops below 25 then the teacher would not get the extra prep.

–Michelle asked about the term “due process.”  Lauren explained it.

 

IV.        Night School/Cyber High Update

–Lauren said students have been registering.  Cyber High will launch next week and there will be 3 sessions.  Social Studies is not available for Night School. Tomorrow is the last day of registration.

–No class size will go above 38, but there are always those who drop out.

–Juniors and Sophomores can sign up if there is room.

–Lauren mentioned the classes available with Night School and she sent an email to everyone mentioning the classes.  Students who received F’s or D’s can sign up.

 

V.         Final Exam Schedule

–Marcus distributed last year’s schedule, with some changes.

–Marcus suggested having a shorter break between the two exams and an earlier dismissal.

–Grades will be due Thursday 12/20/12.

–Patrick questioned make-up exams and grade changes.

–Doug mentioned that we might get by with just one Winter Assembly.  David suggested that we plan for 2 and then go to 1 if we can.

 

VI.        Administration Responsibilities

–Marcus distributed the advised administration responsibilities due to change in personnel and exchanges of duties.

–Lisa said it will be posted on line.

–Marcus said Katie has taken on some testing and supporting Spec. Ed.  Lisa is taking up technology support.  Marcus thanked Bettie for learning the web site and Word Press.

–Katie also passed out the Clerical Responsibilities

 

VII.      CELDT Testing Update

–Lisa gave an update on how the testing is going.  Lisa thanked Ethan and Patrick for their contributions.  Karen and Rodolfo Cancino and Nancy Statler are doing the testing in Room 119.  Lisa explained the process of calling students from classes for the testing.

 

VIII.     Emergency Plan Review

–Katie told the group that the administrators will visit each department meeting today to talk about the Emergency Evacuation Plan.  Hopefully there will be a folder in each classroom.  There are not many changes.  Katie explained the posting process in the classrooms and the evacuation route needs to be posted.

–All Department Heads told where their meetings are held.

–Discussion followed on the recent evacuation we just experienced and how we did.

–Joseph mentioned one line of the evacuation map that is confusing.

 

IX.        PD Calendar

–Lisa distributed the PD calendar.  It will be presented to the UBC this afternoon.  This is a draft.  She thanked Leah and Michelle for help in including lots of requests from all of the departments.

–Wednesdays are mostly school-wide activities.  They will be school-wide activities.

–Thursdays are teacher days, with teacher requests.  Thursdays will be the same each month.

–School Loop time is always factored in when grades are due.  Lindsay Silverman is helping with School Loop training.

–Kathleen mentioned the October 18th ELD activity and the fact that they need to prepare for it the day before.

–Lisa said that clusters are mainly held during department time.

–Ray said his department does not use clusters.

–Stan mentioned that “time earned” for the October Open House is not reflected in the schedule.  Report cards will be distributed at the Open House.

–Discussion followed about how to name each item on the calendar.

 

X.         Evaluation Packets

–Stan asked about the number of evaluations this year.

–Stan asked if the teacher had a choice about the short or long evaluation.  Last year the administrators did all long forms.  This year they would like to do some short forms, but do not know how to select each one.

–Patrick suggested they read the contract.

 

Department Head Meeting

 

I.          ELD Feedback & Next Steps

–Lisa said she got feedback from yesterday’s PD.  She said she is excited about giving some teachers at school leadership opportunities.  She would like to see this work continue.  How do we move forward with this?  How do we propel this work forward?  What engagement strategies can we use that engage students and not take much time?

–Discussion of alternatives followed.

–Joseph said he enjoys going into other teachers’ classrooms and seeing how they teach to their students.  He feels it is really effective.  He mentioned focusing the Peer Observation Component in a discussion following the activity.

–Ray felt the leadership opportunities for staff is great.  He was surprised about the assumptions teachers have about what the students know and do not know.  Each department will be different.

–Lisa thanked everyone for their feedback.  She said next week there will be similar workshops.

 

–Marcus said they will be looking for the Authentic Language Objectives when they do walk throughs. Kathleen asked about the monthly GLO’s.

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:40am.
