Public forum 

  •  None

FY 2023 operating budget - Presentation
Eligibility policy 6431 - Presentation; Draft Revised Policy
  • Abell - Disagree that all are "not afforded opportunity because they are all afforded the opportunity.  Moving backwards and lowering the bar.   Last revision was 4/2018 and eligibility actually went up in 2019/2020.  I need to see additional stats on eligibility for other counties to compare with our numbers.  I can agree with changing quarter to semester but not lowering GPA or allowing failing grades.  If a child can not attend school, they should not be able to play ball.
  • McGraw - Disagree with Abell.  Look at it through our equity lenses, Special Ed and FARMS is falling behind and cannot participate,
  • Battle-Lockhart - Struggle with the GPA requirement except with Special Ed, FARMS.  Yes to semester vs quarter.  No failing grades.  Some students will just always be 2.0.
  • Wilson - Open to suggestion but in 2018 i would not have,  We want to have a standard but opportunity for growth.  Would this help with discipline issues?
  • Herd - excited to see this discussion and for the students.  against the attendance policy.  How many would this make eligible?  
  • Brown - Agree with Ms. McGraw and Ian.  I support the policy. 
  • Hancock - Against anything that lowers the bar.  How do we get the FARMS students eligible?  We are suppose to educate them for a career in the world.  This is not going to help them get or keep a job.  What job can you hold successfully and have 20 unexcused absences per year.
  • Lukas - clarification on numbers.  Staff will provide all of the additional requested data and bring before us at the next meeting.
