Head Teacher Report
No change in enrollment.
Piano instruction for Logan: Logan would like to learn piano, and Jordan has expressed interest in providing lessons for her at school. Specific details have not been determined, but it would most likely be 30 minutes, twice a week. I checked board policy, and as long as he is under my direct supervision, fingerprint clearance is not required. If we decide to have him get fingerprint clearance for liability purposes, it would cost $25. He does not need to get the full background check as he will not be working with students unsupervised. Margaret made a motion that Jordan get fingerprinted and the position of music instructor be offered to him at $15.00 per hr., to be paid with Extra-Curricular Tax Credit Funds, effective immediately, Kris seconded.
- Field Trips
- We have a field trip planned for February 4. We are attending the musical, We the People, at Yavapai Community College. The performance is free; however, I would like to take Logan and Danielle (and possibly Louis) to lunch after the show. As we did in October, we will drive separately. Board approved lunch reimbursement.
- Renaissance Festival in February: Student days are offered at a low cost, however, I am not certain if we can attend on either of the two days. If not, can the school pay for Logan to attend on her own time? It would be the regular attendance price of $27 for adults and $17 for children. I haven’t discussed with Danielle yet.
- Looking ahead to Spring Break, I know that Logan would love to attend the Phoenix Center for the Arts Camp. The price has not been determined yet, but I’m assuming it will be similar to the fall camp, which was $230.
- Professional Development
- I am attending an 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid training at the Yavapai County Education Service Agency (ESA) on Friday, January 31. There is no cost for the training, but I will have to buy lunch. The board approved and agreed to reimburse Shannon for lunch, mileage and also lodging if weather is a concern.
- CPR/First Aid Training: Sue and I would like a refresher course. I feel it would also benefit Logan, so I’d like to hold it during the school day. Sue asked Steve Lombardo if he is interested, and we are discussing dates. He is also checking with the fire department to see if any of their personnel would like the training. Once we have the class planned, we’d like to open it up to community members.
Margaret volunteered for the Board Position for one year, Kris and Sheila approved.
