Hearing from the Public
Information & Discussion Items
2014 Title I Plan
Discussion:  Larry Smith, Deputy Superintendent, updated the Board on The district’s Title I Plan. The State Department is requesting districts not to submit their final plan until after they receive their allocations. The district is waiting for the final 2013 supplemental allocation that is allocated to reading sufficiency. This will help pay back Title I for the summer reading academy. The principals would like to have more teachers and fund their own supplies through their budgets. The money saved would add three half time teachers to the sites.
New Organizational Chart
Discussion:  Sapulpa’s Administration is currently updating the district’s Organizational Chart. Revisions include updating titles to fit job description and define chain of command. Once they have finalized the chart it will be brought back for final Board approval.
Revised/New Policies
Discussion:  Denise Jordan, Curriculum Director, attended a workshop that provided new laws pertaining to third grade retention. In accordance with Oklahoma state law beginning with students that complete third grade in 2014 a student will be retained at the third-grade level if the student scores an unsatisfactory level on the reading portion of the third-grade criterion-referenced test. A student may be promoted for “good cause” if the student meets one of the statutory exemptions. A student retained in third grade in accordance with the Reading Sufficiency Act may be eligible for a mid-year promotion to fourth grade providing the Student Portfolio has been completed with a score of proficient or advanced on each skill listed on the Tulsa Are Reading Initiative Rubric and upon showing progress sufficient to master appropriate fourth-grade-level skills. The new and revised policies regarding third grade retention will be brought back in August for final Board approval.
204. ELEMENTARY PROMOTION AND RETENTION (Revised)
204.1 THIRD GRADE RETENTION (New)
204.1.2. PROMOTION, RETENTION AND CLASSIFICATION FOR SECONDARY (Policy Number Change)
204. SPECIAL PROMOTION (Revised)
204.1 THIRD GRADE RETENTION GOOD CAUSE EXEMPTION (New)
Superintendent Comments
District Copy Machines
Discussion:  Kenda Terrones, Business Manager, provided information on saving money on the district’s copier contracts. Principals have been responsible for attaining bids on their site copiers. After looking through all of the contracts it was realized that there are many different brands of copiers throughout the district. The district can save money if it consolidates to one vendor who can provide the equipment and repair them. PBS Copier was one of the companies who placed a bid. They come to the district with great references and capable of servicing the existing equipment.
