Team DHS Minutes
Student Community Council Meeting
January 7, 2020
Members present: Stan Young, Brian Bleazard, Daron Gatherum, Billy Hoopes, Eileen Potter, Janae Rowley, Al Jole, Heidi Brady, Rick Coil, Wyatt Gines.

We each read the previous months meetings, and they were voted on and seconded. They passed unanimously.

Eileen Potter will write letters of appreciation to legislators. She is thanking them for money for music dept, A.D. materials, and money for the computer lab.

Janae Rowley mentioned that we should have the SCC meetings put on the school calendars.

ACT Data from previous years was reviewed. Our average composite score has risen each year. We aren't quite at state level but we are steadily rising. Mr. Young would like us to get to state level, that is our goal. This is a mandated test score only. The State sets the benchmark of where the kids should be. Last year we did really well, but past years haven't been as successful.

Family Passes for sports were discussed. They have been offered for Winter Sports. Different options were presented. Not many people bought them. The motivation for this was to save people money.

Control of younger kids in the building during school events:
Maybe we should announce at the beginning of games that kids need to stay with their parents. Wyatt Gines suggested that we all maybe could patrol the hall ways a little if we are at the games. Al Jole suggested offering the old gym for kids to play at.

Review of emergency procedures:
The school is changing what they are doing a little bit. Procedures will be the same district wide. Alert and lockdown procedures were discussed. There is a level 1, and a level 2. The school uses a code that will tell the staff whether it is a real alert/lockdown or not. In case of an emergency (lockdown), Rochelle sends out an automatic email, text, and phone call alerting all parents/guardians. We have a team of members that are in charge of reunification for parents and children if/when these things happen. Heidi Brady asked if substitute teachers know the procedures in case things were to happen when they are working. Our mantra at our school is "Run, Hide, Fight."

Our 2020-2021 Trust Lands Plan:
By March/April, we need to have our budget and school improvement plan ready for next year. We need to think about things that we would like/need for next year. Mr. Young will ask the teachers for their recommendations. It was suggested that maybe we continue to help the A.D. Team, technology, and Reading Plus was also mentioned. Reading Plus is $7500 a year. Our upcoming budget should be about $55,000-$60,000 for next year. Janae also suggested getting ACT prep supplies for Mr. Chapell. Mr. Gatherum also suggested headphones for classrooms to help excelling students who might want to work ahead of others. Mr. Young also suggested security cameras in classrooms with audio. Also maybe we could put silent vaping alarms in the bathrooms.

Janae asked about locker room safety. Mr. Jole said that kids are taught locker room etiquette in preseason. Mr. Young mentioned that supervision is also important. Rick Coil suggested possibly using thermal imaging in bathrooms/locker rooms. Daron G. suggested that anit-bullying policies be put in documents.

Next SCC meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 at 6:00 P.M.
