The Coral Gables Senior High School EESAC meeting was called to order at 2:55 pm, by chairperson, Stephanie Hofmann. A quorum was established. Introductions were made. Ms. Hofmann distributed copies of the minutes of the EESAC March 14th meeting. Mr. R. Gonzalez made a motion to approve the minutes of the March 14th EESAC meeting as presented. The motion was seconded. By consensus, EESAC approved the minutes of the March 14th EESAC meeting as presented.

Ms. Alvarez stated that Dr. Martinez has decided that the class set of microscopes requested by Mr. Bloomfield are needed. Dr. Martinez is requesting that EESAC purchase these and he is still researching the costs for the language lab. Ms. Rodriguez made a motion to use EESAC monies to purchase twenty microscopes at a cost of $7760.00, which excludes tax and shipping. The motion was seconded. By consensus, EESAC approved the expenditure of EESAC monies to purchase twenty microscopes at a cost of $7760.00.

Ms. Cater stated that she and Mabel Melton met with Mr. Barrera, our school board member, to discuss the renovation of the school auditorium. She stated that Mr. Barrera’s administrative assistant, Barbara Miranda, stated that a bond issue is going to be presented to voters, possibly in November. If passed, there may be $12 million allocated to Gables for renovations and construction.

Ms. Munnerlyn made a motion to amend the minutes of the March 14th EESAC meeting by inserting “Ms. Munnerlyn is the UTD representative in the absence of Mr. Blackmon.” The motion was seconded. By consensus, EESAC approved the amendment to the minutes of the March 14th meeting.

Ms. Hofmann stated that the May EESAC meeting is cancelled as there is no business to discuss. She will notify all EESAC members of the date that the SIP will need to be reviewed and EESAC will then meet. This notification will probably be in June.

Ms. Hofmann adjourned the EESAC meeting at 3:10 pm.
