Meeting commenced at 3:35.  Those in attendance:

Carol Stephens-Klipp - Principal

Jen Conlon - Teacher

Laura Sandeen - Parent

Deeanna Butts - Teacher

Review LCFF Final Expenditures 2019/20:

  • Mystery Science - $1076
  • Printers For Lab - $1060
  • 3 Apple TV Remotes - $61

There is a small remaining balance should any incidentals come up related to these last purchases


Preview of next year’s LCFF Budget:

  • The district is expecting to be short by double-digit millions next year
  • Dewey is expected to have $31,500
  • 10% less than 2019-2020 allocation so will have to adjust expenditures
  • Next year’s LCFF will mainly go to Science PD and Social/Emotional Learning


We will be losing MTSS support next year.  They are putting together a document to help with the repercussions of that including ideas and resources that are available.  We will most likely still have Rita to help support EL students if we have the students to support it.  


The staff approved changing the clerk’s hours from 5 to 4 due to budget cuts and a decrease in enrollment.  Do we want to reinstate that 5th hour to help with the office staff transitions due to Carol leaving and the nature of things when school starts up again (post Covid-19 school closures)?


The Crab Feed Committee is still going to have a live auction; it will be done digitally.


There will be elections when school resumes for next year’s Site Council members whose terms are up.


Meeting adjourned at 4:05
