There will be no School Community Council for the month of May.  Our regularly scheduled meeting (second Tuesday of the month) lands on the District Free Fishing Day which our students will be participating in.  We had no one write in with wanting to be on the agenda and nothing from the council that needed to be put on the agenda either.  Enjoy your summer and we will meet again in September! :-)
 
Thank you,
Heather Ash

Utah County

Springville, Utah

Oakridge School Community Council

 

To promote ethical behavior and civil discourse each council member shall:

  • Attend council meetings on time and prepared
  • Make decisions with the needs of students as the main objective
  • Listen to and value diverse opinions
  • Be sure the opinions of those you represent are included in the discussion
  • Expect accountability and be prepared to be accountable
  • Act with integrity

Rules of Procedure:

 All meetings are open to the public and the public is welcome to attend.

The agenda of each upcoming meeting with draft minutes of the prior meeting will be made available to all council members at least one week in advance.  If anyone wishes to be added to the agenda, they must contact the chair person at least 8 days (prefer two weeks) prior to the meeting in order to be included on the agenda.  In order for the meetings to end on time, each person on the agenda will be allotted a specific amount of time for their presentation.  When asking to be put on the agenda, that person should specify how much time they will need for their presentation, and they will be asked to not go over that allotted time.  If time allows, there will be open discussion at the end of the meeting for public input.

Minutes will be kept of all meetings, prepared in draft format for approval at the next scheduled meeting.  A draft of minutes from the prior meeting will be sent with the agenda for the current meeting to all parents. 

The chair conducts the meetings, makes assignments and requests reports on assignments.

Meetings shall be conducted and action taken according to very simplified rules of parliamentary procedure as required in 53A-1a-108.1(9)(i).  Items on the agenda take priority over other discussions coming before the council.  Action of the council will be taken by motions and voting.  The motions and voting are recorded in the minutes.

A motion (or an action to be taken by the council) is stated as a motion.  Someone else on the council “seconds” the motion indicating that at least one other person on the council feels the motion is worthy of discussion.  Then the council members may provide input and discussion as called upon by the chair.  When discussion seems complete the chair may call for a vote on the motion.  Or when a member of the council “calls the previous question” (a motion to end discussion of the first motion), a second is required and then, without discussion the chair calls for a vote that must pass by majority.  If the vote on the previous question passes, the chair directly goes back to discussing the first motion.  If the motion to call the previous question passes, the chair directly calls for a vote on the first motion.  A vote to call the previous question is usually used to move business along.

Summary of statewide SCC training

 Training for Officers with Paula Plant

  • What to include on agenda
  • How to conduct meetings
  • Record keeping (agenda’s and minutes posted on website for 1 year, archived for 3 years (not necessarily on website)

  • Who takes minutes (to be determined by council) could be secretary, rotational, office staff, etc.

 

2014 Legislative Session with Aaron Garrett, School Children’s Trust, Utah State Office of Education

  • Management of $ from school land trust funds (Creating an independent board over an independent office as the governance structure for the permanent State School Fund.  Currently, there is an advisory committee, they would like to implement a governing board.
  • Study of the distribution policy.  Study changing the DP from an “interest and dividends” to a rolling average of market value.
  • Require enhanced reporting- as an oversight and performance evaluation
  • Preserve prudent investor rules- modern portfolio theory, diversification, delegation, no category of assets is prohibited.
  • Remove any asset class restrictions
  • Require an annual fund audit
  • Require independent custody- take steps to require that assets be held by an independent third party custodian

It was suggested to have better wording on the agendas - be more specific about what we are talking about in the meeting.

Collaboration - some parents are concerned about changing the schedule because their students don't do well with changes. Others are interested in giving the teachers the opportunity. We are looking to find a happy medium. It has been tricky to figure that out.

Alice suggested that we survey all the parents.

We could hire teachers to cover the collaboration time for teachers.

Send home a note that explains the pros and cons to all parents.

Alice brought up the IPads for Angels and suggested that we get involved.

School Community Council Minutes - October 3, 2012

Welcome - Courtney Morton
Introductions
Volunteer for note taking, Liz Reynolds and Courtney Morton

Noel Carlson - laws for council. Chairman is assigned with task of making the laws known to council. Character - defined. Parents share obligation to be involved at the school. School is a monopoly and run how the monopoly wants it run. Parents are required to know the code. Proposed that we spend the first 5 - 10 minutes talking about the code as it applies to the agenda items from the previous week.
Noe Estrella - feels that the school is doing well. Wants to understand what Noel's  motivation is. Noel stated that he wants to make sure that it will improve things.

Lynn Mecham - How many spots open on the council? Lynn explained what has happened with the voting and that after consulting with Reed Park, the NSD attorney, the voting process was done correctly and should stand. The council raised concerns about not being able to vote from home. It was decided to table the issue until the council can decide how to proceed with future voting for the next year.

Discussion - How will we have an even number of people on the council rotate out? How does a parent have a voice if they are not on the council?
Heather moved that we have Alice Spencer take Bonnie Foy's spot until the end of the year and that Noel Carlson and Heather Ash continue on the council for the remainder of their term. Noe Estrella, Maria Quintana and Marta Beaudry will be serve this year and fill their 2 year term. A motion was made and seconded and a vote taken. Everyone agreed. There was no dissenting vote.

A fundraising committee was formed and will begin meeting separately from this group.

Proposed that next meeting is on October 30th.

September 17, 2012
