IV. COMMUNITY RELATIONS / PUBLIC COMMENT  A. School Board Recognition Month Mr. Steve Walker Parent/CoSchool Site Council President voiced a community concern that some children are not being pushed to their full potential, he stated that he thinks that NCLB has tied our hands in some respects but he feels that it is important to keep th pushing our kids. At this time there are no 6 graders who are at accelerated levels th coming over this year. From the time school starts until 9:30 every morning the 6 graders are being taught math, during that time there are several students who are reading because they have finished their assignment and homework, the teacher is still teaching the lesson. In the not so distant future this may have devastating effects on test scores, scholarships, COS classes, etc. He feels that we are sending the wrong message to the kids that it is okay to just get done go sit in the corner and do what you want. He believes that there should be an option for these kids and their parents. He asked the board to look into this. Mr. Walker also thanked the board for their service!
Mrs. Patricia Reeder Superintendent assured Mr. Walker that this concern is being st looked into and there are changes in the works. On February 1 Critical Thinking classes will be tested and redone so that there will be proficient and advanced classes with things like robotics and other types of activities for the students. nd Mrs. Bev Byrne 2 Grade Teacher at Newell Elementary spoke to the board regarding the letter that she put in the suggestion box. This is not a problem just at the Elementary School but also at Newell. We always have taught to the top and now we can’t because the kids are coming in so low, the kids are just lower plus they have the second language issue, no Summer School, not much of a homework component in TASSEL, a combination of things. It is very important that we send our students to TES reading and she is afraid that might not be the case this year. In order to be a better reader you have to read, and have someone listen to you and help. She feels that it is important to have more in class aide time and a possible solution to this would be not to bring in more staff but to realign the staff at NES to allow more in class help. We have some excellent programs at Newell but we need more. Mrs. Patricia Reeder asked how many students in Mrs. Byrnes class go to the TASSEL program, and how many teachers from Newell work in the TASSEL program. Mr. Venancio Hernandez Board Member asked what culture kids are we talking about? Are Hispanics lower? nd Mrs. Byrne Teacher 2 grade stated she has both Hispanic and White students who are low and of course the Hispanic kids have the language issue. Mrs. Reeder responded that we currently have an 87% Free & Reduced lunch rate, which means that 87% of our students are socieconomically disadvantaged. Mrs. Wright Teacher/TASSEL Coordinator responded that TASELL has started doing more phonics and other programs to help with reading in the afterschool program. Mr. Orr Board Member asked if we have ever asked for volunteers to come in and read with the students. Mrs. Byrne stated that they are working on getting volunteers. Mr. Baley Parent/Community Member stated the Klamath County has the Smart Reader Program and that some of the employees who work with him participate in this. They go to the schools at a specific time and volunteer their time to assist with reading. Mrs. Palmer Kindergarten Teacher at Newell Elementary stated that most children at Newell are Hispanic, we have more kids that do not speak English and it is really difficult to work with the students who do not speak English and still get to the ones who have attended preschool and are at a higher level. Out of her class of 20 – 17 are attending the Extended Day Program/TASSEL afterschool program and 15 went to PreSchool.
Mrs. Jana Rupert Parent/Community Member spoke of problems with sportsmanship and ethics in our basketball program. She stated that we have a Code of Ethics and Sportsmanship and it is the duty of the school board, superintendent, athletic director, coaches and parents to support this policy. She stated that coaches are receiving technical’s, “what are we teaching our kids” technical’s are called on the players and they continue to play, the bench is getting technical’s. So frustrating and so embarrassing when kids laugh about the technicals. We need to teach our kids to respect the officials. I want to see the unsportsmanship behavior dealt with. Mr. Jeff Boyd School Board President asked if there is a policy about this in our handbook. Miss Angie Callas Athletic Director stated no, there is no policy in our Athletic Handbook. Mrs. Jana Rupert Parent asked if we have received letters from officials regarding the behavior of coaches. Mrs. Patricia Reeder Superintendent responded that we have not received any letters from officials. Mr. Jim King Teacher/Girls Basketball Coach stated that he agrees with Mrs. Rupert we have a Code of Ethics and it needs to be followed. He also thanked the board members for showing up at the games. Mrs. Dee Dee Herman Parent/ Community member stated that the Girls Basketball Coaches sportsmanship in Alturas was an embarrassment to us. She stated that “she overheard the coaches yelling at the girl’s during halftime and that when she attempted to enter the locker room Mr. Kehoe physically forced her out the door. She felt that she has a right to protect our kids.” Mr. Jim King Teacher/Girls Basketball Coach stated the in response to Mrs. Herman’s comments if you asked Coach Kehoe or Coach Kirby or the girls nothing like that ever happened. This he feels is “an out and out lie” and he strongly opposes these statements. th Mr. Dan Lindsay 4 grade Teacher read a letter to the board from Mr. Kevin Spencer TBTA President, as he was not able to attend the meeting. This letter was urging that the music program continue. Mr. Dave Misso Board Member stated that he concurs with this letter from Mr. Spencer. Mr. Randall Baley Parent /Community Member recognized the board members for School Board Recognition Month and stated that he wishes that every parent had a chance to participate and become aware of the work that goes on. He stated that technicals called during the game teach something, they allow you to check into the cause/they are there for a purpose. He also stated that we need to concentrate on the positive things that are going on such as a full gym, raffles, YMCA players at half time and it is important to support, support, support we are all in this together. He stated that he agrees with requests to keep the music program. He feels that we should see if coaches would continue to coach without the stipends, and feels that many would because if you are into coaching for the money you are in the wrong place. In closing he stated “keep the music program & Good Luck to the board.”
Mr. Jim King Parent/Teacher stated that art/music programs meet the AG requirements for Fine Arts in college application process. While attending the last music concert it actually sounded like music! He supports the music program. Mr. Dave Misso Board Member stated that he was not aware that the board has discussed the music program. Mr. Roy Wright Board Member stated that we just have to be careful, we have some hard decisions to make ahead with the budget and it will all be a balancing act. Mr. Jeff Boyd Board President stated that he appreciates the participation and different view points that everyone brings to the meetings. We sometime have no one in the audience so it is nice to have people here to participate in the process. V. REPORTS  A. Mrs. Thompson presented the Financial Reports to the board.  1. Cash Balances Report  2. Edward Jones Investment Statement  3. Consolidated Application Part II  4. Business Activity Calendar  5. ALSCO – Mrs. Thompson presented to the board a new proposal from  ALSCO our linen service provider. In an effort to cut costs she had been  researching ways to reduce the monthly fees for this service including  discontinuing the service and laundering linens at each site. However  after a visit from the Health Department we were informed that linens  used in the kitchen must be laundered separately from other linens used  at each site which would require two separate laundry areas at each site.  ALSCO presented a new proposal that significantly reduced the monthly  amount for this service. It was the consensus of the board that we accept  the new proposal and continue with services from ALSCO.  6. Mrs. Velador presented the Bills Listings No. 20 – 23 B. Mrs. Jones was out of town on school business so Mrs. Reeder presented  the Elementary School Reports to the board.  1. TES  2. NES  3. Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)  4. School Accountability Report Cards (SARC) Mrs. Patricia Reeder spoke about the current structure for classes at the  elementary school, self contained classrooms. She and Mrs. Jones are looking to  change some things and are trying to address the issues discussed at this  meeting regarding teaching to the potential of our children. Mr. Jim King Parent/Teacher stated that he wanted to commend the district on  the excellent educational opportunities in the district. He also added that he  thought we should explore opportunities such as the after school science club,  etc. that we have had in the past. Perhaps by asking “How can you help the  school district?” (Volunteers) On a positive note as well he wants to report that  the Girl’s Basketball Team is working hard, they are a talented group and they  are playing at a competitive level.
