Tina asked how many students attend the Skills Center. John said that they presently have 28 students attending. She also asked Steven Carney how the Primary School got a 40% reduction in behavior referrals. Steven said that each week they look at factors such as time, location and grade levels of behavioral incidents, and work on training and increasing positive behaviors. Jim Bays asked about the influx of high needs special education students this year. Deb said there are 2 students at Fir Grove that cost $30,000. Tina asked if there are more students because people are recommending our District’s Special Education program. Deb said that she’s heard that is the case.  Matt Donald asked Asha if the curriculum team was stepping away from the Engage NY for English Language Arts. She said that the District has used Engage NY for math, but that they wanted to look at English Language Arts curriculum.

SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

 

Michael Green shared the revised schedule for bond refunding of current WSD Bonds that ESD 112 provided.  Mark Prussing will be at the next meeting to discuss a bond refunding resolution with the Board. Michael said that the Skills Center open house on March 12th from 4-8pm, will be a good opportunity to see their new buildings and learn about their programs.  The new WHS site is progressing quickly and under budget. Construction should finish on time. Administrators are focusing on reconfiguration. 

CORRESPONDENCE

 

CWU Running Start Alert
Currently, Running Start students can qualify for college credit for a minimal cost. The Governor’s proposed budget will eliminate this element from Running Start High School programs. Michael asked Board members to call legislators and ask them not to eliminate this Running Start element.  Matt Donald asked Michael to draft a letter from the Board regarding this. He said that he would do so and route it to them for signatures, to save time.
