A. Agenda-The agenda was reviewed and there were no amendments.
B. Review minutes of July meeting-The minutes of the meeting were reviewed and no changes were necessary.
C. Good News Report-Fall sports are doing well. The booths set up at the athletic events are being well perceived. Eighteen FBLA members participated in United Day of Caring throughout Lincoln County. The administration was pleasantly pleased with the PAS scores.
E. Public Comment-Karen Hatter received a call from a ninth grade parent stating that their student was having a good academic experience this school year.
- 30 Day Plan-60 Day Plan-Everything on the thirty day plan has been completed except for one item, the book study. Mr. Godbey felt at this time there is so much going on at LCHS that the book study would begin the next school year. Mr. Godbey provided the council with a very rough draft of the 60 day plan. The TAT will be meeting to discuss what needs to be implemented in the next 30 days for the 60 Day Plan.
- LCHS “Systems” Work-Mr. Godbey provided the council with a form called Professional Growth System for LCHS Teachers. This form covered school goals and the overview progress of professional growth for teachers. The school year will be divided up into 3 quarters. Each quarter a teacher will meet with their assigned principal and identify their areas of growth throughout the year. They will discuss, implement, review their plan and at the end of the year a summative evaluation will be written.
- Review “PAS” Data-Mr. Godbey provided the council with PAS Report that broke down LCHS by Skill and grade level. More than 50% of all students in each grade level 9th-11th were meeting College Readiness benchmarks in English, Math, Reading, and Science. There will be more emphasis placed on those students that scored in Level I trying to improve their scores.
- PLC Update-Mr. Godbey and Mr. Watkins discussed the progress the different PLC’s were making.
- Review Financial Statements for August 2012-The finances for August 2012 were reviewed.
- Graduation Honors Policy 13.0202- Mr. Godbey would like to recognize more students at graduation by changing graduation honors from the top 15% to Magna Cum Laude, Suma Cum Laude, etc. The question is what process we should take. Mrs. Sutton suggested that seniors be recognized by GPA, ACT Scores, and being CCR. No classes should be weighted except for AP, since we are banding students based on capability. It is no longer an honor to be in honors classes when you are placed there based on test score. Mr. Bandura also agreed with this suggestion. Students at graduation should be recognized for higher ACT scores not for just meeting state benchmark (i.e. 28+). Mr. Godbey decided that a committee needs to be formed to discuss on how to honor graduates. This committee will consist of someone from the board office, principal, counselors, teachers, and the senior class president. This policy would not take place until the next school year.
- Update on personnel changes since the beginning of school-The following are new hires for the 2012-2013 school year: Ashley Smith-Business Department and Cody Dean-Computer Lab Asst.
The meeting ended at 5:28.
