- Space/Room Usage for Next Year – Frank. Stratford is going to need another room next year. They are expanding their programs and need a bit more space. Right now it looks like Jeff Fishbein is going to move but we don’t know where yet. We might have to move the lego-robotics people to put him in the trailer. A room committee will be established. We might need to get rid of the HS Computer lab. We would rather not get another trailer so if anyone has any ideas please let us know. The computer lab was moved to facilitate room supervision and it’s worked. The Room Committee might want to talk to the Technology Committee to mesh ideas about the laptops. It might be a good idea to have more of a mobile computer lab, another laptop cart might be able to offset the loss of lab.
- Superintendent’s Proposed Budget & HBW’s Allocation – Frank. The main thing that will affect us is whether the class size for secondary schools will increase. The Superintendent has stated that he will propose another increase. We might end up losing funding for a few more teachers, about 1.5 positions. We’ve coped in the past using retirements, and taking on more students. How will we cope this time round?
