Topics Covered:

The meeting was opened up at 8:30 by Ms. Belkin. The committee was welcomed back and thanked for being committed to the education of our children. The minutes from the last meeting were read by Ms. Mack-Freeman. They were approved by Coach Covone and seconded by Ms. Hildenbrand.

Mr. Bueno discussed the fact that we were an A+ school. He thanked the teachers, staff, students, and the committee for the hard work that they put in. He said that the A was achieved by all of us working together as a team. It was also discussed that the students did not meet AYP. The Hispanic students did not meet AYP in reading and the African-Americans did not meet AYP in Mathematics. A sub-committee will be made to decide how the funds will be distributed. The sub-committee will be made up of one person per department and the UTD steward.

Ms. Lebena will be working with the department heads on the School Improvement Plan. There are some changes from the way it was put together last year so the help of the committee will be needed. Ms. Lebena stated that the draft of the SIP would be presented at the next meeting.

Mr. Bueno informed the committee that all of the EESAC funds were taken that we had left at the end of the school year. He said that the amount that EESAC would receive per child has gone down to $5.00. Mr. Bueno requested that EESAC allows him to have $2999.99 to be used at his discretion with some focus being given to FCAT initiatives and incentives. This was approved by Ms. House and seconded by Mr. Ramos.

The September meeting will be scheduled for the approval of the SIP.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:56 am.
