1. Welcome

2. Review Teacher PLC Survey Data

              1. Overall results of survey are very positive
              2. Results of PLCs and whether or not they are beneficial on scale of 1-5; majority ranked 4 or 5. Minimal 3s & 2s.
              3. Overwhelming majority would like to see PLC time continue to be funded in 2016-17 school year.
              4. Majority of respondents would like community council to fund remediation time into the school day.
              5. ~75% of respondents would be interested in ‘sub-time’ to observe other teachers
              6. Expectations need to be set again with one grade that needs additional direction; needed to re-wind and gain buy-in from all participants.
              7. Focus has been math but in some cases there are opportunities to address other subjects, when time allows.
              8. Most teachers openly expressed how beneficial it is to have Heather attending (joins ~85% of the time)
              9. Requested projector in the conference room
              10. Adam Thompson checking into how Davis school district completed their Satellite PLC training and whether it is an option for our school/district.
