EESAC Meeting – September 15, 2015


The EESAC meeting commenced at 4:45 PM by Mrs. Erika Leon. Introductions were made, as it was the first meeting of the school year. The first item on the agenda was the review and approval of the minutes from the previous EESAC meeting, May 21, 2015. Mrs. E. Leon read the minutes. Ms. Covone motioned to approve the minutes and Mr. Heras seconded the motion.
The second item on the agenda was the review of the School Improvement Plan (SIP). Ms. C. Jeffrey, Assistant Principal, presented key points of the 2015 - 2016 SIP. Some of the components include a shift in the plan; for example, the Action Plan, Attendance Review Committee, Incentive Program, and Parental Involvement Plan. There is an Action Plan for each respective disciple, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences. Said Action Plan includes barriers and resources, including strategies that will be subject to change once the Instructional Review Team observes and considers the needs for each department.
The presentation of the SIP will be reviewed at our next EESAC meeting to be approved.
The third item on the agenda was the SIP budget. Mr. Fernandez asked the committee to consider utilizing $2,999.99 from the EESAC funds to provide incentives to students for achievement. The incentives would include student recognition, awards, and funding for the end-of-the year awards ceremony. Additionally, use funds to provide transportation to MDC-North for students who are geared for testing, ink toner for classroom use, purchase of Gigabytes (GB) for increasing computer bandwidth, and purchase of computers for additional lab. Ms. E. Leon inquired about the role PTSA would play in supplementing partial funds to assist with the requests; Mr. Fernandez will welcome assistance from both entities.
Ms. E. Leon requested final comments, concerns, and/or questions. Ms. Rodriguez was grateful to Country Club Middle School’s continued support and participation in partnering with Miami Dade College and participating in projects; such as Science Night, Bullying Symposium, and Dual Enrollment program, amongst others. Mrs. E. Leon and Ms. Jeffrey concurred that these programs and events should be mentioned as part of the SIP. No other comments, concerns, or questions were mentioned.
Ms. Covone motioned to adjourn the meeting and Mr. A. Heras seconded. The meeting concluded at 5:45 PM.
