Personnel Action - Motion to move to closed session made by Mr. Jones. Motion approved by consensus.

Teacher/Parent Concerns–Janet Dean and the parent visitors discussed the need for a six period day to help the enrollment numbers in band and electives. They have been told that the five period day is a Central Office decision and that JCTC scheduling comes first. Visitors asked what they could do to put pressure on Central Office to at least look at changing the scheduling. With four core classes required, a five period day only allows for one elective choice, limiting a student to electives they may not want. Mr. Jones recommended they meet with Central Office or Board members.

Set Agenda for Next Meeting – Members were asked to email any agenda items for next month’s meeting.
