  • Opportunity for public comment* NONE
  • LSC announcements, including committee reports if applicable: Eleni (PPLC/ILT):  Talking about getting resources for teachers.  Silvia (After-school):  Starting a Debate group for 5th grade on up; this is a non-profit that is in a few schools around like Lab; there will be a small fee but it is not too high.
  • Discuss Principal Evaluation feedback Silvia: There will be a meeting with Megan to give her feedback if anyone would like to attend.  It shouldn’t be too long.  A teacher should be there too.

Respectfully submitted,

Kara Scott
