Board Notes: November 2012
The Honey Creek Board of Trustees met on Wednesday October 24, 2012
-The Board extends it appreciation to Shellee for another successful audit which was reviewed with the board by accountant from Yeo & Yeo, our accounting firm.
– The director’s evaluation was reviewed and was overwhelmingly positive. Discussion followed regarding the Board’s goal to create a more concise director evaluation specific to HCCS in accordance with our Strategic Plan.
-Nina Nabors reports that the initial draft of the Honey Creek Story will be sent to the Outreach Committee for review. Once completed, this will be used to create a power point presentation which can be given at fund raising activities as well as shown to prospective families. The committee will also create a short web video as well as a pamphlet to enhance visibility and public relations.
-The Fund Development Committee continues with the process of obtaining 501c3 status and the 1023 form will be finalized by the end of October 2012.
-Al will continue to investigate the option of a management company and will report his findings to the board
-As a result of HCCS being identified as a Focus School, Al reports that an Intervention Specialist has been hired to assist the students with lower levels of achievement in both language arts and math.
-A language survey of the students was recently completed with a final assessment of needs anticipated by the end of November. Al is in the process of coordinating English Language Learners services which has proven to be challenging for a number of local schools due to a lack of appropriately qualified personnel.
-To help support and encourage HCCS participation with the board, Karen will email the board meeting agenda to the school community prior to each meeting. The complete minutes are available on the HCCS website. The Board will meet next on November 28, 2012 at 5:30 pm in the High Point Reception Room (the pit).
