EESAC Minutes – November 16, 2010 – Country Club Middle School

The fourth EESAC meeting of the 2010-2011 school year commenced on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 5:00 pm by EESAC Chairperson, Mrs. Linda Belkin. The minutes from the previous EESAC meeting were read and Ms. Covone motioned to approve the minutes and all in attendance approved the minutes. The EESAC was presented with three plans for the distribution of A++ monies by members of the School Recognition Plan Committee. Ms. Covone explained that there were a total of three plans being presented, two of which were developed by the School Recognition Plan Committee and one that was developed by the faculty. The EESAC was not made aware of which plan was developed by the faculty and which plans were developed by the School Recognition Plan Committee. EESAC members were then asked to vote for their top two choices among the plans in order to narrow the plans down to two for the faculty to vote on during the November 30, 2010 faculty meeting. The EESAC was given time to compare the three plans. Mrs. Belkin asked if everyone was ready to vote and the voting started with Mr. Gil who voted for plan A and B, then Mr. Uz voted for plan A and B, then Mr. Lobato voted for plan A and C, then Mr. Fernandez voted for plan A and B, then Mrs. Belkin voted for plan A and B, then Mrs. Orta voted for plan A and B, then Mr. Merrick voted for plan B and C, then Ms. Covone voted for plan A and B, and finally Mrs. Martin voted for plan A and B. The EESAC chose plan A and B for the faculty to vote on during the November 30, 2010 faculty meeting. Mr. Lobato then asked a question regarding faculty proposals for the use of EESAC funds. Mr. Lobato wanted to know if there were specific criteria for faculty proposals. Mr. Uz suggested that faculty proposals should include a dollar amount. Mrs. Lebena added that the EESAC funds had to be used to promote Country Club Middle School’s School Improvement Plan. Mrs. Lebena then suggested that all faculty proposals for the use of EESAC funds should include a specific dollar amount, the number of students that will benefit from the proposed plan, and an explanation of how the proposal promotes the School Improvement Plan. The EESAC agreed to Mrs. Lebena’s suggestions. Ms. Covone then motioned to adjourn the meeting and Mr. Uz second the motion. The meeting was adjourned at 5:30 pm.
