1. Numerous team members were unable to attend for various reasons. Sara will email minutes to team members.

2. We need to recruit parents to serve on our SIT. Several parents have been asked but have prior responsibilities. Kelly Lane has a prospective parent, but she must check with her employer before committing.

3. The team discussed that the School Improvement Team is a public open forum. The team will only conduct a closed session if making a safety plan for the school. The minutes from each monthly meeting will be posted on the school website. 

4. BCS is requiring all schools to have a Safety goal as one of its SIT goals. The team discussed adding a safety goal to the plan that included having a consistent place to keep/ find medical information, emergency contact information, necessary medication and medical devices in the case of a medical emergency or evacuation. It is important that everyone working in a classroom knows where to find these things in the case of an emergency.

5. Carol Ray expressed concern that the TCR PEP teachers are not on the list for receiving emails from the TCR administrators. It was requested that all teachers receive emails regarding school safety and other school related changes such as but not limited to, attendance and schedule changes that affect our students and the peer tutors that work in the PEP classrooms. Valley Springs and Estes Elementary PEP teachers are already included in their schools email systems and receive necessary alerts. Mr. Weigel will address this concern with a TCR administrator to help resolve this issue.

Next meeting scheduled for Monday, November 18, 3:30  in the PEP – TCR conference room.
