X. Board Members’ Comments Sheri Doniger said she attended Dance Marathon. Lynda Smith attended the Business Partners breakfast and said it was wonderful. Bob Silverman spoke of post-prom events at North and West and how it is a safe, chaperoned environment for the students and many schools do not offer this type of event. XI. Business Literacy Center Andrew Jeter and Lisa Fretzin spoke of various tutoring settings and workshops offered throughout the year. Lisa spoke of survey given to students and its overall positive results of the center. Students and teachers were surveyed when they brought their classes in for seminars. A review of attendance showed how it has increased every year. They spoke of the future to have students who want to be tutors, increased seminars, and target special education students. The Board questioned why at West more teachers are not requiring their students to visit the Lit Center. It was noted that West teachers have found that more students are going on their own. It was also noted that North’s attendance is the normal level; West’s attendance is higher due to it being in a more central location of the building. The Board asked for test results from students who attend the literacy centers. This will be provided. Minutes of Regular Board Meeting of May 19, 2008
