II. DISTRICT REPORTS

Code of conduct public hearing – Ms. O’Shea reviewed the recommended changes for the 2023-2024 Code of Conduct.  She added that the Plain Language Summary would be adapted for the primary, intermediate and secondary grade levels. The draft Code of Conduct will be on our webpage for a 30-day comment period. Comments should be sent to Mary Rumsey, district clerk. Plain language summaries will be provided to parents and students at the start of the school year.

Mrs. Giller asked if the plain language summaries would be age appropriate. Ms. O’Shea responded they would be adapted at various levels, (primary, intermediate and secondary) and all versions will be available on our website upon completion.

Mrs. Paradis noted some areas that needed to be changed for consistency. The Code will be reviewed to ensure this.

Mrs. Carey expressed her appreciation of the removal of redundant language so the Code is easier to read and asked if there is any acknowledgement of receipt from parents of the Code of Conduct.  Mrs. Paradis inquired if there could be an electronic receipt of the Code. Mr. Martinelli will research this.

Mrs. Snyder commended the great work that’s being put into the document for our students and parents.   She suggested that when teachers discuss the Code with students, could there also be a focus on some of the positive things? Ms. O’Shea said discussions could incorporate this.

Mission, vision, beliefs and commitments – Ms. O’Shea reviewed our current Mission, Vision, Beliefs and Commitments.  The board agreed to keep Mission and Vision the same and agreed upon a minor change to the Belief of the Efficiency of Resources.  This will now read “We Believe in the Efficiency and Equity Of Resources.”

Board committees – Ms. O’Shea, Ms. Mackey and Mr. Martinelli reviewed the charge of each committee and the number of times they meet each year.  Board members will be asked to choose their committees at the August 9, 2023 board meeting. Mrs. Carey and Mrs. Giller stated they would continue to serve on the Policy committee. Mr. Jackson and Mrs. Paradis stated they would continue to serve on the Facilities committee. Mrs. Giller mentioned expanding the committees to have parent representatives.  Ms. O’Shea will work on a process.

School culture and climate – Ms. O’Shea provided an update as the some of the action items that the middle school team has been working on including a review of discipline incidents to determine future prevention and intervention responses, summertime parent meetings, a relaunching of PBIS, the creation of an In-School Support room, and researching of additional ways to engage families.  She also mentioned that as part of an ongoing collaborative effort, there will be a meeting on July 13 with the Chief of Police, Mr. Martinelli and secondary principals.

Mr. Jackson asked how are we gathering input from parents?  Mrs. Paradis commented that we have an opportunity coming back from the pandemic to let our parents/families know that “we are open; you are welcome here.” Various options were discussed.
