Task Group Updates
SSSP – Student and Parent Open House - Orientation sessions for students will be held at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Plans include developing a Parent Orientation.
Students that have their assessments scores will be able to work on an abbreviated Ed plan. If not, they can attend one of the additional orientations scheduled. New students have until July 11th to complete all steps for enrollment.
High School visits – Claros shared the high school visits have been well received even with some technology problems at the schools. Outreach student ambassadors have done a great job providing information, which allows counselors to cover more topics. Counselors keeping track of students progress and plan to follow up with students that do not complete an abbreviated Ed plan.
Cordero complimented everyone that has participated in the high school visits on their flexibility and ability to make it work even with problems. Since this plan is not sustainable over the long term, we need to move forward with the online orientation. Per the SSSP recommendations there will be a vetting of the SSSP plan and recommendations presented to Senior Staff and once approved referred to the PBTs with action plans. Will look for additional funding from SSSP to meet the needs of the plan.
SSSP proposed registration priorities – discussion regarding the proposed changes and the need for an appeal process, (so students can be heard) someone to develop it, review appeals and make determinations. Concern expressed about equity issues, students that can pay for full time attendance versus students that can’t, forcing students to enroll as a full time student and then not being able to offer enough sections to meet the needs.
