Chairperson Ramos called the meeting to order at 3:05 PM. The council members completed the principal survey, which will be turned in by the chairperson. Also included was the input of Mr. Yamada, who could not attend due to a doctor appointment. The minutes of the March 9, 2016 meeting were approved as distributed.
Mr. Fernandes presented the academic plan, which was approved by the faculty on April 19, 2017. This new plan is a three-year plan covering school years 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2019-20. If needed, the plan can be updated as needed in future years. The first goal of the plan is to have all students on a path to success in college, a career, and as good citizens. Achievement of this goal will be measured by data such as percentage of at-risk students and student perception of a positive school climate. Faculty will use the Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS) to provide Tier 1 and if needed Tier 2 interventions to help guide students to successful outcomes. Tier 2 includes intensive involvement of counselors. The second goal of the plan is a high-performing school culture centered on staff success with the help of training, support, and professional development. The third goal is to provide systems of support such as appropriate technology and parent-community communication. A new development to support this goal is a new technology coordinator who will help faculty with the appropriate use of software. After listening to this summary, the council unanimously approved the 3-year academic plan.
The council presented Mr. Tokushige with leis and speeches of congratulations for his many years of service as a council member. There being no further business, Chairperson Ramos adjourned the meeting at 4:10 PM.
Meeting review: council efficiently conducted the meeting to cover a heavy agenda; academic plan powerpoint slides were very helpful
