REPORTS TO THE BOARD
Student Representative Report See attached report.
Other ReportsBill Woodard asked if it is only secondary teachers that can apply for National Board Certification. Mr. Green responded that we, in fact, have at least three K-6 teachers who are either currently certified by the NBPTC or seeking certification. Jim Bays asked if the National Board incentive is still in the state budget. Mr. Green was unsure, as the budget has not been agreed upon. Tina Cayton had a question regarding the TEAM High math test results. The majority of TEAM students had not passed Algebra I end-of-course exam.
Michael Green gave a report on ballot returns. See attached. Michael will be watching the polls next Tuesday from the Fat Moose for results. Tina Cayton remarked that there were mostly positive letters to the editors. Michael responded to a negative letter that was in the Reflector.
