Meeting Date:  Monday, August 29, 2016

Time:  8:30 – 9:30

Location:  Conference Room

Minutes Adopted on:  March 16, 2016

 

Members: Ass Principal, Sonia Pineda, Cristina García, Sara Rodas, Lilian Cruz, Roberto Cruz, Joana B. Mendez, Gabi Rivera.

Administrator: Alli Greene

Community Liaison/Interpreter: Candelaria

 

Debrief: These prep meetings are for the Ass Principal to receive feedback and for the EL parents to be candid about the needs and strengths of the families and the school. Especial focus is given to the low income families, low achievers, at risk youth, and students that want to pursuit a 2 year college or technical career. On the other side of the spectrum EL high achievers need to receive as much support and recognition as they deserve.

 

Last school year a lot was done to improve communication between the school and the EL parents. The minutes of the March 10th meeting were red. Achievements and goals were reviewed and updated as follows:

                                   

Talking Points

Comments

Communication

  1. A new Community Liaison was hired that also serves as an In-House Spanish Interpreter/Translator to address the needs of monolingual Spanish speakers. 
  2. A tab “En Español” was created on the TL page with relevant school information, community resources, and events information. Also, a number of forms as well as the Study Guide were translated into Spanish.
  3. A survey of “Parents’ Interest” was submitted to the SELAC families at the beginning of school year 2015-16. We now know the topics that parents are interested in:
  • Internships
  • Technical career
  • Certificates of accomplishments
  • Tutoring after school
  • Extracurricular activities
  • LCAP participation
  • Parenting skills
  • Mental Health Resources
  • Mentoring Programs
  • Behavior modification
  • Drugs, alcohol, sex, gangs.
  • Community building/Support groups.  Parents want to be able to support each other; they asked to share contact information.
  • It was agreed that speakers will be brought to the SELAC meetings on topics of interest to the parents in 2016-17.
  • Parents were informed that Dr. Marisol will be presenting at our SELAC on November 15th.
  • It was agreed to have presentations in Spanish about the services and programs offered inside and outside the school.
  • It was agreed to have 2 AERIES trainings in 2016-17
  • It was agreed to keep on having “Monthly Chat with the Principal” in 2016-17. Presently, parents expressed their desire to meet with the Principal once per quarter. Candelaria will follow up on this request.

 

Participation

  1. Parent’s participation to the SELAC meetings increased tremendously; up to 54 parents at our third meeting of last year. Presently, parents’ goal for 2016-17 is to have 50 parents in attendance at every SELAC meeting.
  2. Sonia, Cristina, Sara, Lilian and Joanna will make phone calls the night before to remind parents of their respective grade to come to the SELAC meeting.
  3. SELAC meetings will be announced in the marquee and a banner will be placed by Sonia Pineda at the front of the school on the morning of the meeting.
  4. Parents commented how welcomed to the school they feel, now that there is a bilingual/bicultural CL on campus
  5. More parents are coming forward to talk to the academic counselors since they know interpretation will be provided. It was communicated to the parents that, at all possible, counselors prefer visits by appointment
  6. Candelaria has an open door policy.

Leadership

  1. Parents inquired about PSP (Parent Service Project) coming at TL to train them in leadership and engagement. PSP submitted their proposal to come to TL when feasible. In a recent meeting, Ms. Dunlap informed Candelaria that she is committed to bring PIQE to TL this year, too.
  2. In general, parents want their voices to be heard and their vote to count.
  3. Parents want the administrators to give them information on the petition from Ipso School proposing to open an independent charter school in the San Rafael High School District.  

Information

  1. Parents wants to receive information at the SELAC mtg. on the following programs:
  • AVID, ELD, COMPASS.
  • Ipso School
  • Parents were informed about Avi Fernandez going full time to SRHS, thus, TL not having a Spanish speaking staff in the CCC.
  • Parents were informed of the Librarian, John Gilluly, being at TL from 12-4 only. John will continue running the afterschool tutoring program, though.

Outreach

The CL will continue reaching out to the community in search of programs that will promote parents’ engagement, leadership and inclusiveness, address family needs, and support the EL in accessing higher education.

 

Adjournment: 9:30 am. 

The next regular SELAC committee meeting will take place at 5:30 on September 20th, in the TL Library.
