finalized because the roles of the CEO and principals are being defined based on the School priorities
and needs. . The administration will be taking the next few months assessing the most appropriate roles
for each position.
COVID Policy
Mr. Peckens also updated the SAC on the latest COVID policy including ending the mask mandate as
allowed by the latest NM Public Health Order. The Governing Council (GC)
Additional changes will be
Temperature monitoring will not be required for students, staff, and visitors – this decision was
made when it was noted that no cases of COVID had been identified using this method
PMG will continue to have a presence on campus to test and identify illnesses
Although masks are not mandated the school will continue to recommend and support anyone
who chooses to wear a mask
Social distancing and outdoor lunches (when possible) will continue
Responses to SAC from November meeting
Mr. Peckens reported on the responses by the GC and School Administration (GC/SA)
SAC: Calendar start date being different from APS is worrisome for parents, with no available
camps/childcare.
GC/SA response: SA is will be working on coordinating their schedule and APS and will also be
considering setting up childcare for the week before school starts if appropriate.

Suggestions: Before/After Care starting earlier to align with APS, and including a full day of childcare.
See above
SAC: Are lockers open for consideration in the future?
Especially with the Chromebook student backpacks are very heavy for our youngest students.
GC/SA: Currently there is no plan to install lockers, due to space and security concerns additionally,many
of the textbooks may become electronic in the future.
SAC: Recommendation that the remote option continue into future years.
Discussed the difficulty of teaching both remote and in-person students simultaneously.
Even if remote learning does not continue in its current form, it is suggested that Google Classroom
continue to be adopted by all teachers for assignments/lessons that students and parents can access in
the event of an absence.
GC/SA: It is anticipated that some form of remote option will continue to be available for students who
are unable to attend classes even after the pandemic is over.
SAC: Does the school plan on opening a Kindergarten class? This may affect recruitment tactics.
GC/SA: There is currently no official plan to add a Kindergarten class due to space limitations, however,
long tern plans do include the addition of a Kindergarten as well as increased enrollment for all grade
levels. Additional students will be dependent on the completion of building plans.
New Student Recruitment Efforts discussed at the November SAC meeting will be integrated into the
new recruitment plan if appropriate;
Target Demographics
Parents of 5th graders.
“Peach Jar”: flyers for APS schools and afterschool programs.
School of Choice Fair
Parade advertising? Twinkle Light, Pride. Banners/Floats.
Tapping into local businesses for parent-employees.
Dentists/Pediatrics/Orthodontists offices
Recruitment Plan Review
Ms. Sedore introduced and reviewed the draft Recruitment Plan with the SAC. The following
suggestions were made by SAC members:

21 st Century students should be in attendance at the School of Choice (not sure if this is

the name) and the Charter School Fair for student to student interactions

Shadow day for interested students (dependent on COVID restrictions)

Posting on Nextdoor app
Focus on athletic program since it is unique to public schools
Label pins similar to the Be Kind pins distributed at UNM- “Be a dragon”?
Bumper stickers or car magnets with school info
Mr. Peckens and Ms. Sedore will be bring these suggestions to the Unity Graphics meeting on
February 24 for consideration.
Ms. Sedore will update the Recruitment Plan and send it to the SAC for review within the next
few weeks.
The next meeting of the SAC is scheduled for May 16, 2022.
