1. Several team members were unable to attend for various reasons.

2. Several staff had attempted to locate SIT plans from other similar schools, with little success. Most could not be located, or were geared toward regular education.

3. Larry Weigel has expressed his thoughts that the SIT should be taking on more of a leadership role within the school. Discussion included:

- SIT involved in making decisions regarding the focus of student learning

- the Technology PLC’s suggestion that the SIT be responsible for planning the annual October staff development

-ways to promote organized sharing of techniques/expertise among professional staff, including the need to find ways for teachers to observe in other classrooms

-the need for training time for TAs

4. Parent representative Lisa Marx asked about policies regarding parent volunteers.

5. Staff morale issues were discussed. One suggestion was the continuation of the afterschool social gatherings started last year.

Next meeting scheduled for Monday, November 16, 3:30  in the PEP – TCR conference room.

Agenda:
