3. Dr. Hart presented copies of the proposed Land Trust and TSSP Plan for 2023-2024. She noted that the exact amount of funds we will receive is not available yet. Allocations for two Interventionists salaries is included. Some cuts to tutoring and teacher professional development days were necessary. Appropriate typographical corrections will be made to the plan. Albion will continue to administer the Reading Inventory and Math Inventory because their results have a high correlation with Rise scores.

4. The signature pages to approve the Land Trust and TSSP Plans were passed around. It was noted that the names of four of Albion’s current SCC were omitted. Dr. Hart will contact the CSD office to request an additional signature page including: Melinda Rosevear, Emily Decker, Jessica Pohlman, and Michelle Schmidt. (The printer frame cut off these names, the missing page will be available for the missing signatures after spring break.)

5. Cheating concerns will be discussed by the Albion Building Leadership Team. Many students do not perceive they are doing anything wrong by sharing information or using computer assistance.
