Issues That Were Discussed This Meeting

Mrs. Imboden provided current student enrollment numbers, staffing updated (student count at 645
verses just under 700 enrolled) and all classrooms are staffed (with the exception of Intermediate SEC).

Budget concerns were brought forth in regards to funding of Lexia (PTA has agreed to purchase), AR is
funded another year, school purchased AIMS with some differentiated monies given by the department in
CCSD called IDPL (there is still about $2,000.00 left over which is going to help pay for the National
Board fee of $3250.00). The SOT was given the current budget breakdown and Mrs. Imboden asked for
numbers-amounts to be calculated because she wasnt getting the correct percentages/allotments. The
SOT also calculated the numbers and they werent totaling 85% or even 75% for Fall allocations. Mrs.
Imboden was going to inquire how the allotments were calculated based on the budget which was
submitted and approved last Spring.

SOT discussed the elections and the parent members expressed wording for the upcoming
announcements, sending out a pre-recorded message regarding service. It would be discussed at the
PTA meeting at 6 pm. The teacher members explained that the unions were already beginning to
advertise for re-elections and Mrs. Sowell reported that the support staff union was having a meeting on
the 24th about elections.

The school is moving forward with Going Green. Paper was distributed differently (case in Fall, case in
January), Newsletters solely on-line beginning in October, Parent Handbook was printed on-site and
added to the website, and no orientation booklets were given this year.

New Business
Mrs. Colemen introduced Amazon wish list links and will move forward with getting teachers to add the
link to their classroom websites. It was asked if the fourth grade scholastic/shirt fee $25.00 could be
added to the webstore page for ease of parent funding.

*There were no parents/community members in attendance therefore nothing to report regarding


Community Input.
