The Leadership Council of 2013-2014 met for their final meeting of the year. A gathering of students, staff and parents acknowledged a year of efforts and accomplishments. Items of business included the following:
* Council Endorsement Process: Ballots went home in backpacks this week and are due back to teachers or the front office on Friday, May 23. Many new parents submitted statements for endorsement, and we are all excited about the new possibilities with next year's group. We discussed ways to encourage a high rate of return of the ballots; the more people return the ballots, the more inclusive the process can be. The new Council will be published the week of May 27.
* Barton Foundation Update: Outgoing Foundation Board Chair Steve Richter gave an overview of the budget and fundraising process, and led a discussion on several budget items.
* Working Groups: We briefly reviewed the structure of working groups that we will initiate next year. These will consist of both Council and non-Council parents, with the hopes of increasing transparency, accessibility and efficiency of Council functioning. The Council voted to return to a two-hour monthly meeting, and to change the meeting to a set time of 4:30 - 6:30 pm.
* Principal's Report: Patrick updated the Council on some school improvements, issues and questions.
