Question by Amy Mero if there is a procedure for lunchtimes. There is a lunchtime drill in the works
Positive Behavior Plans
Administration will review data and talk to decide the best PB plans and bring it to the SCC in upcoming meetings.
Reading program Wonders is starting to really settle in – they are trying to set up subs to allow some time for in depth training in the other programs and the necessary budgetary needs.
Current program sends Instructional coach to come around and observe teachers. Then revied with teacher immediately afterwards with direct feedback.
Discuss Child Access Routing Plan (SNAP)
Children are walking in the road on Galina, wanting sidewalks south side of Galina, crossing guard or crosswalk on Poppy till then. Or perhaps a no parking zone? Principal will discuss options with mayor this week. Other ideas are to have safety patrol kids to teach students to stay on sidewalk instead of walking across grass. Also discussion on having a local policeman (or three) come and enforce safe drop off in the morning till drivers understand procedure better.
Thrive Time Program
Glacier Hills has been asked to pilot the new Social Emotional program. Glacier Hills will be required to report to the district monthly. SCC is in full support of the ‘Thrive Time’ program.
Tyler Smith motion to adjourn, motion unanimously passed.
