PARCC assessment; 6 states still using it.  Assessment is better beyond PARCC.  We need to think critically about what testing and why?

Silvia: Start process of survey to parents and teachers regarding principal evaluation.  We do this during Survey Monkey.  Same questions, just need to update before sending it out. We need to have results in by next meeting in April.

Second part of last year’s evaluation that includes student’s achievements which is the summative rating of 3.5.

Silvia:  Let’s take a straw vote to write a support letter for Medici: Is anyone not in agreement with the spirit of the letter?  {No one raised a hand}.  Great. We will send a letter with my signature and list the members of the LSC underneath.

Respectfully submitted,

Kara J Scott
