STAFFING MEETING: same status
I met with Dr. Simpson and Dr. Wiley regarding our staffing needs for 17-18. Below are the items on my list I took for discussion (I take everything I think we could need/utilize, even if some may not be realistic) At this point, John and Sandy are meeting with all principals to discuss needs, ideas, solutions, etc. They will then look at staffing district-wide and meet again with each principal.
considerations to offer GEMS to meet the minutes and not have to have GEMS students miss a PE class to meet their minutes
