Theresa DeLisle presented the DAC Report.  Theresa reported that the budget priorities from the various schools were similar:  staff, counselors, and keeping specials.

Bobbie presented SEL Data. .  Bobbie shared that the preliminary reports were good.  Average daily attendance has increased from 84% to 92%, and the number of students on appeals has decreased from 90 students to 54 students.


Bobbie shared Assessment data. Illuminate - Overall performance was very low at Finest.  Teachers are learning how to use the Illuminate Data. The test will be shared with teachers prior to the instructional period next year, so results should improve.   Writing - For the first two quarters, writing scores have increased to 99% of students being proficient or partially proficient. This has been a five year goal for Finest and the results are promising.


Bobbie discussed Parent Teacher conferences. Scheduling Recommendations - SAC members recommended that Finest provide a purpose for parents when they are here and waiting during goal setting.  They thought that having time to meet with counselors who had stations set up addressing various areas like college, financial aid, teen issues, etc. They also thought that having Finest Features printed for parents to read while waiting.  Bobbie will work with the staff to set up something for March conferences.
