IV. Old Business:

  1. Report from ED committee:
    1. General report on behalf of committee: D. Hawkins:
      Where the committee is at: the concerns are with Carver, is it possible to have a part-time director; problematic areas: aren’t any clear policies, need to direct staff to create policy and be sure all staff/board members know what policies are; he believes the Carver will work, yet we need clear end policies and expectations to alleviate problems; we will stick with the part-time director model, perhaps in the future will go to a full-time; the school is making progress, need to use the carver model correctly; concern- if we bring a new person in, change the structure might start the whole system over
