SITE COUNCIL Minutes from January 2015
JFK High School Site Council Meeting Minutes
January 13, 2015
 
I     CALL TO ORDER
Chairperson Jessica Schmidtman called the meeting to order at 7:00 am. Present: Jake Copley, Carmen Fennimore, Margaret Inoue, Ron Schmidt, Jessica Schmidtman, Craig Swanson and Edilberto Valladares.
 
       II   APPROVAL OF AGENDA/MINUTES
Jessica asked for additions to January’s agenda: none; and corrections to December’s minutes: none.
 
       III  STUDENT REPORT
No report. Discussion about having an elected student representative who is present at all Site Council meetings.
 
       IV  OLD BUSINESS
  1. Discussion of example Goals: Discussed developing norms, such as posting meeting minutes and announcements to the website. Principal Swanson said he will work on increasing awareness of our website. Margaret said Facebook has changed the way it does postings and not all posts will go out to everyone. Tweeting is a better way to communicate now. Twitter will give everyone a text without targeting individual students. Principal Swanson said official communications will be by website, Blackboard Connect phone calls and letters to parents.
  2. Vote to Approve bylaws: JFK High School Site Council will be the official name of this association. Principal Swanson said the bylaws don’t need to be approved at any certain time of year and can be reviewed and revised when necessary. Jessica asked if the bylaws could be posted to the website now. Principal Swanson said he will post the bylaws on the website. The council still needs one member at large, preferably someone without school children and who can represent the Hispanic community.
    It was moved and seconded (Inoue/Schmidt) to approve the bylaws as written. Motion passed unanimously.
  3. Creation of Kennedy Goals and Vision: Principal Swanson suggested we have one goal and put all of our focus on achieving it. Jessica asked if we should come up with a mission statement for JFK apart from the District’s mission statement. Principal Swanson said he believes the district’s statement covers what we are trying to accomplish.
    It was moved and seconded (Valladares/Swanson) to add the words “continuous and independent growth” to the first example goal and use it as our first goal. The final goal would read “We will provide each student with challenging and motivated learning experiences that lead to continuous and independent growth.” Motion passed unanimously.
    Principal Swanson suggested we focus on two areas of our curriculum as we think of ideas to support our new goal: expanding AP and CTE curriculum.

     VI  NEXT MEETING
 February 10, 2015 in JFK Library from 7:00 to 7:50 am
