  • Discuss tutoring
    • How many unique students using tutoring?
    • How many repeat students?
    • For students repeating continually, why?
    • Is there a way to target students that really need help, but may not take advantage of tutoring
  • Are the programs that are in place helping? What could be different?
  • Math Aide
  • Class that is being held 2 periods—effective? How does it work? Who teaches it? How were the students selected?
  1. Concerns:
  • Weight of backpacks for students traveling many times between Albion and Butler
  • What will happen when it snows and students have to wear coats?
  • Brookwood is having problems with the parents of Albion students being dropped off there. J. Roberts suggested that a police presence might be helpful. It was also suggested that an email or letter could be sent home to parents reminding them of the following:
    • Parents should avoid cell phone use while driving
    • Obey speed limit, no speeding
    • Students should use crosswalks
    • Parents should follow the elementary school’s traffic patterns and rules for school safety
