Topics Covered:

The Coral Gables senior High School EESAC meeting was called to order by Chairperson Stephanie Hofmann at 2:50 pm. A quorum was established. Introductions were made by all present. The minutes from the April 13 meeting were reviewed; Mrs. Hyatt motioned to accept the minutes and Mr. Gonzalez seconded. All present accepted the minutes. The agenda was issued.

I. Final SIP report was orally overviewed by Ms. Otero, Assistant Principal. She announced that a new format for the report would take place next year. There were questions asked as she reviewed each section; some grammar questions, for example the use of quotations on the word “plagiarism” in the writing segment. Further discussion and recommendations were made on the report. The SIP End of the Year report was accepted.

II. The Honor Code rough draft was reviewed. Most present liked what they saw, and agreed with the need for an honor system.

III. Ms. Otero-School Financial Report. We are a Title 1 school. We have lost eight teachers. Principal Gans will use Title 1 & AP money to buy 2 pacts (teachers). Ms Otero reviewed the school wide programs; our allocation is $300,064.

IV. PTSA Luncheon for faculty and staff was another great success! The PTSA is offering free money for supplies. Email all requests to the PTSA; Ms. Otero will send an email to all regarding the availability of PTSA funds.

Ms. Hofmann thanked everyone for their help during this school year. The opening of school will be August 24, 2009. Graduation will be on June 5, at 3 pm.
