VII.       ACTION ITEMS 

  1. Approve transfer for final spending

D. Gamet: Two things (see attached):  We (Crozier)should zero our budget.  We need to do this by the deadline so we can get materials for testing and this school year.

The software, Imagine Learning came out of LEP. The licenses were purchased last year and never used.  The licenses for this year are paid for in one area but need to be paid under LEP (see TRANSFER REMARK attachment).

D.Decker wants a report on the effectiveness of the computer program(s).

D. Gamet: This can be done on some of the programs we have.  Most programs can have reports generated on classes and individual students.

Ms. Logan and Ms. Ngissah: Discussion that this council needs to evaluate programs before initial purchases.

D. Gamet: There was a lot of good spending for this year but now there is also a file started for ideas and items teachers want purchased for the next year.

Teleparent is a good for our requirement for parent involvement under Title I.

Ms. Turner asked about some budget items, including a question about software licenses. She was concerned about students not being able to use computers in the library.  She heard that classes are in there.

Ms. Decker feels that ordering is not structured. She feels it should be.

Ms. Baker mentioned that in the English Dept amounts to be spent in specific areas are outlined in the English Dept. Single Plan.

Ms. Ngissah: This year we need to get these orders in and meeting time was not able to happen soon enough to discuss (department- we have just begun early dismissal/dept PLC time).

D. Gamet suggested that School Site Council use time after testing to think about next year's budget.

S. Donahue: In the school he worked at previously, all of the ordering went through the department chair. 

Many council members agreed with the process Mr. Donahue mentioned.

Ms. Decker favors a flow chart for how spending is done.  She would like more control over this and SSC input.

Ms. Mills: It would be better to just give each department a budgeted amount. The English Lang. Arts Dept has ordered some things together.

Ms. Ngissah: Marcy Perry (LACOE/QEIA) said to just put everything down and then prioritize.

Mr. Gamet: We are evolving in this. Many requests now are for small items. He suspects that this will evolve into larger needs for programming as we develop these programs.  He reviewed the TRANSFER REMARKS with the council.  We need to spend our money now.

Ms. Ngissah would like council training on reading the budget.

Mr. Gamet: We should schedule a special SSC meeting with budget analysis as the ONLY discussion item and he will do that with the council thoroughly.

All agreed.
