A few items were approved during the meeting, including the acoustic wall panel improvements for four elementary schools and the Amanda Arnold HVAC unit relocation.

Concerns were raised during the agenda item involving collaboration time for 2013-2014.

Executive Director Teaching and Learning, Carol Adams primarily spoke on this topic, but several board members had questions about the survey results.

A district-wide professional development needs assessment was formulated, as well as an assessment for elementary teachers.  A few of the board members believed the numbers and percentages looked a little low.

Adams reminded the board that the numbers are an improvement from last year, and said she believes many of them show positive feedback.
