  • Mid Year Progress Report: SIT needs to update the data on the mid-year progress report. SIT will meet on Tuesday, February 20 at 2:45 to finish the mid-year progress report.


  • T1 Updates: New Title I Tutors will start on Tuesday, February 13. Please welcome Yvette Ballard and Malissa Reams.


  • LIM Updates
    • Action Teams will meet on the 4th Thursday of each month. The next meeting will be on Thursday, February 25.


  • IEP Meetings During the School Day: Ms. Edwards addressed the issue of holding IEP meetings during the school day. 1) We have a part time EC teacher from 8:00-12:00. 2) We share a school psychologist, Occupational Therapist, and Speech/Language Pathologist with other schools. 3) Some parents request a daytime meeting. The SIT team suggested that our EC department give teachers three dates to choose from for an IEP meeting. After the EC Department met, they decided that EC will try to give teachers 2 dates to choose from instead of 3. 


  • Faculty Concerns:
  • Working Conditions Survey will start on March 1 and run through March 31. Please make sure you complete this survey. We would like a 100% completion.
  • Culture Day will be on June 8th
