PLC/Safety Committee: Our monthly PLC/Safety Committee meeting agenda focused on field trip safety, training, and summer work needed to maintain playgrounds and cafeteria safety. 

Personnel and School Structure:  We have received  resignation letter from our Goldfield food service worker, Sherry Huffman.  The position will be filled through transfer of Scott Hawkins.  His position will not be filled due to budget cuts.  Our reorganization of the counselor position has led us to having a District Coordinator with responsibilities for behavioral interventions as well as a host of other responsibilities which were formerly handled by the counselor.  Jasmine Simental has been transferred into that position and already holds the required degree in psychology.  

District Facilities and Bus Update:  The 25 years of paperwork stored in Goldfield secure storage room  has been moved to a conex box by the cafeteria, making space for another classroom.  Wendy, Anabel, Manny, Monahan, and Doug worked to identify a literal bus load of old documents requiring proper disposal, saving half a storage room.  Manny is already at work outfitting the new classroom.  Summer projects have been planned to organize curriculum, clear out more old material, and prepare for an August garage sale.  Silver Peak has received some much needed carpeting in both classrooms and it looks great!  Thank you Manny.  Manny and Brian have installed the donated drinking fountains (filtered and chilled bottle filling stations) in Silver Peak and Dyer.  Goldfield will get theirs soon.  We would like to recognize  Albemarle for donating the money for the fountains.

Superintendent/Board: In our Monday morning Staff meetings Mary Ann, Anabel, Wendy, and I have applied for our high school 3 year renewal, alternative schedule for our 4 day week, and a host of other required state documents.  Our school improvement plans and district improvement plan (CIP, and DPP) have been worked on by ASOs and school staff, as well as district staff to wrap up this school year and prepare for the 22-23 school year.  Summer school has been planned for both the elementary and virtual high schools.  Leadership training for ASOs in June at the Superintendent’s Academy, as well as in house training for those new to their positions has been carried out, and more training planned.  Nevada superintendents are taking on the task of working on reducing the abundance of assessments required at the state level,and Jesus Jara of CCSD is spearheading our movement to end SBAC testing with the possibility of using the MAP test instead.  We are just starting work on this and haven’t nailed down the particulars, but we will be working to move away from taking one test after another.  We’d like to recognize the support of the  local Masonic Lodge, once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores.   We are just starting work on this and haven’t nailed down the particulars, but we will be working to move away from taking one test after another.  We’d like to recognize the support of the  local Masonic Lodge, once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores.   We are just starting work on this and haven’t nailed down the particulars, but we will be working to move away from taking one test after another.  We’d like to recognize the support of the  local Masonic Lodge, once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores.  once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores.  once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores. once again donating money for the end of year bike give away to the students with the greatest growth in reading scores.
