    Site Council Meeting Notes
    Tuesday, September 15, 2015
    2:40 pm – Room 104
     
    MINUTES
    In Attendance:
    Staff: Janet Deal, Christina Pannu, Katy Sjoberg, Roger Kortes, Laura Garcia
    Parent Volunteers: Keely Adams, Brenda Griffin, Emily Rickman
    Student Representation: Josh Adams, James Estes
    Welcome:
    Janet welcomed Site Council members to the 2015-16 school year and thanked them for their participation. Self-introductions were made. Joining us this year are parents, Brenda Griffin, Emily Rickman, and Keely Adams (returning-served in previous years).
    Site Council Handbook/By-laws:
    Reviewed purpose and duties of Site Council members. Our SPSA includes specific goals pertaining to student achievement and increasing positivity of climate and culture and invites people to be a part of it. Site Council is made up of 3 parent volunteers, 3 classroom teachers, 1 classified employee, and 1 principal. Middle school students are encouraged to participate, but their attendance at Site Council meetings is not mandatory. Articles specific to Pasteur include:
    - Election of officers will be held at the second Site Council meeting; and officers will serve a one year term.
    - Meetings will be held the third Tuesday of every month.
    It was recommended by Roger Kortes that we accept the Site Council By-Laws as presented. The motion was seconded by Emily Rickman, all approved, motion was carried.
    SPSA Goals:
    Behavior, attendance, academic data will be presented at our next meeting. Annually, we look at progress made after January to compare academic data from MAP testing results. Reviewed two specific goals we had from last year. One was to implement Common Core and LCAP strategies. MAP scores showed that all students had increased scores. We only have one sub group, low social economic students which make up about 40% of our population. Objective was that 80% of low SES students would achieve 80% of growth---and goal was met. Some ways money was used from implementing Common Core: Science (Zingy Learning, an on-line science tutorial, Scholastic Science Magazine, hands on teaching with straw rockets. History – DBQ’s used for history data based questions. English - purchase of fiction and non-fiction books. Subs were assigned for departments to meet as a group or by grade level for planning and development. Leadership and Department Chairs met to discuss most effective ways to share MAP testing results, data analysis, and Common Core practices within departments.
    Currently we provide intensive intervention for students who are struggling with behavior issues and low grades. Teacher, Amy Carter meets with students weekly and places telephone calls to parents to discuss strategies for success. English Language students have one class period with teacher, Christina Pannu, working to strengthen their reading and writing skills. We have a PAWS Program that encourages
    student responsibility and challenges students in these areas: to have a positive attitude; to be responsible and respectful to others, work to succeed, and keep safety first!
    Christina Pannu was responsible for Open House where we had many fun activities and lots of participation with students and families that included a hot dog BBQ, health screening testing, a poetry reading corner, history-jeopardy; science department made ice cream using neutron hydrogen. There was a lot of positive feedback as to the success of Open House.
    New Part-time Counselor:
    We now have a part-time academic counselor, Meghan Thyken, who will work with students on peer relations and conflict resolutions
    Review of CAASPP Scores:
    Computerized testing proposed many challenges. There were some technology issues that needed to be worked out. The reading and writing portion was particularly difficult in that students could not refer back to lengthy articles that were read during the test in order to answer the reading and essay questions. Comprehension and critical thinking skills were certainly challenged.
    Overall CAASPP Scores/Grade Level Testing Results
    Science: 78% of 8th graders scored advanced or proficient in science; this was 1% less than that of Arden Middle School students.
    6th Grade ELA/Lit-----4% exceeds/28% met
    6th Grade Math------7% exceeds/14% met
    7th Grade ELA/Lit----8% exceeds/32% met
    7th Grade Math-----14% exceeds/23% met
    8th Grade ELA/Lit-----7% exceeds/41% met
    8th Grade Math-----15% exceeds/28% met
    Next Meeting:
    The next Site Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20, 2015.
    Adjournment:
    There being no further business to discuss, Roger Kortes made a motion for the meeting to adjourn; the motion was seconded by Laura Garcia, all approved, motion was carried.

    Approval of Minutes from Last Meeting:

    Janet and the group discussed the election process and Janet put in motion for the following:

    As to the election of officers, Janet had suggested that we either move the voting process to the next meeting or send ballets out via email to get the voting process started.  The group decided that the best practice for the election of officers would be send out ballets via email.
