Good look District 150! Up first, the August 13, Board meeting. This is the link to the corresponding minutes from that meeting. A couple of things in particular that I found interesting:
- COVERSION OF QUEST ACADEMY CHARTER SCHOOL FROM A TARGETED ASSISTANCE TITLE I SCHOOL TO A SCHOOL WIDE TITLE I SCHOOL – Moved by Wolfmeyer, seconded by Cloyd that the Board of Education approve the Title I Schoolwide Plans prepared and submitted by Quest Academy Charter School. After a year of being a Targeted Assistance Title I School, Quest Charter School has submitted the following items: a School Wide Title I Plan, Parent Involvement Plan and a Parent Compact which now makes them eligible to implement Title I programming school wide.
- ADOPTION OF LICENSE AGREEMENT - Moved by Wolfmeyer, seconded by Costic that the Board of Education approve a one-year License Agreement with Carl Cannon for use of ELITE program information at Trewyn School at a cost of $80,000.00.
- Mr. Cloyd and Mr. Crawford reported on the Washington D.C. Fly In. (Recall the outrage when Wolfmeyer, Butler went on the Fly In).
- BOARD POLICY 7:70 – STUDENTS ATTENDANCE AND TRUANCY – Moved by Wolfmeyer, seconded by Cloyd that the Board of Education approve the changes/revisions to the following Board Policy as presented by the Policy Committee: 7:70 – Students: Attendance and Truancy. The policy is being revised to reflect the changes made in the Illinois School Code as it refers to truancy. Previously a chronic truant was defined as any student absent from school without valid cause for 10% or more of the previous school year (180 days). That figure has been lowered by 5% by School Code. The Board agreed to waive the first reading.
