Jeremy Peckens presented updates on Procurement, with a lengthy discussion of the Middle of Year MAP’s
student scores. Over all students are exceeding growth expectations and all levels have target growth points
double the expected growth. OSI data was shared with percentages of RACED responses per our Charter
Contract. Student Led Conferences are February 16, 17 and 18. No school for students. All conferences will be
virtual by appointment. Equity Council made suggestions to the policy to be added to the Student Handbook to
include language prohibiting “raced-based” aggression in response to HB43.

  7. COVID Update – Total of positive cases is 49 since August. Three symptomatic persons on
    campus- contact tracing was conducted. Parents are being very careful and responsive to COVID
    symptoms and keeping students home. Illness is still increasing and the need for remote learning is
    still necessary. New Toolkit reducing isolation from 10 days to 5 days. Increase of students
    required to say home if they are a close contact. Increasing number of school choosing to go
    remote for a short period of time. 3 staff members tested positive but are back. In person
    attendance is at about 75%. Ms. Tarango indicated that as long as staff is remaining at about 80%
    or more we could function. Below 65% student attendance or 80% staff attendance instructional
    deliver would be compromised.
  8. PMG continues to struggle to comply with onsite testing. Although we volunteered to be a hub
    for testing they are unable to provide service due to lack of personnel, technicians testing positive
    and resignations. Very frustrating and difficult to communicate with parents and staff when their
    presence is unreliable.
  9. Lottery – February 1 st at 4:00 pm by Zoom.
  10. Update to Organizational Chart at February meeting. Mrs. Tarango has maintained the
    COVID point of contact.
