Public Comment: None, but Nancy Runberg shared appreciation from herself and staff

New Business:
Attendance Data Review: Dr. Crossman and Jeff Kramer presented current attendance
percentages for Brookside’s as close to the same as last year at 95.8%. with somewhat more
unexcused absences. There are some issues with chronic absenteeism that are being addressed
by contact with home including home visits.
Nancy Runberg reported that Blosser Lane’s attendance percentages were also similar to last
year and with more unexcused absences. She also said they have 315 students and had expected
about 350. When asked, she responded that those 35 students were accounted for and many
were in Independent Study as on-line learning was difficult for a variety of reasons such as
connectivity. There is a waiting list for students to be on Independent Study and the district was
trying to hire a teacher to meet this need.
Home School Compacts with Revisions
Some discussion of compacts including revisions previously made
To ensure quorum and ratio of staff and parents, only 4 staff members were included voting
(Heather, Sandy, Jorge and Diane)
Motion to approve by Heather Miya, Olga O’Neill 2nd
- carried
Comprehensive School Safety Plans
Dr. Craig, a school administrator reviewed Brookside’s plan with Kathy Crossman and offered
some suggestions. In the social/emotional area that now is addressed y Second Step and PBIS
plans she had suggested looking at Tool Box which offers students strategies and a choice of
tools. Jeff Kramer will be investigating this program and reporting back.
Kathy Crossman also reported that she had sent the plan to the Interim Chief of Police to
review/.
Motion to approve this plan by Katie Cooley, Heather Miya 2nd, carried
Parent Support Group: Jeff Kramer reported that parent support was 1:1 but will revisit
parent group at a later date.
Old Business:
WUSD Draft Plan for School Reopening – Nothing new to report at this time as Mendocino
County is in Purple Tier. Suzanne Matheson had preciously shared some ideas with principals
and reiterated that safety was the main concern in re-opening schools. She also suggested that if
there is another survey perhaps admin could go through DOJO to send to parents to increase
responses.
