- Different for people that are/were on leave
- Partnerships Dollars
- City Year ~$10,000 per corps members
- City Connects ~$50,000
- Playworks ~ need to think about funding for Playworks because there isn’t enough money in the budget
- Some of the meta compliance money can go to City Connects – Victoria works with alot of families that are ELL. This money can only be used for supplies/materials that directly benefit ELLs.
- Question (PD) – can we make a case that City Year corps members are supporting students that are ELL? This year corps members are not in the SEI classrooms.
- Partnership Dollars increased but the overall the budget remains the same.
- Since JFK is going to ELT – can get a 0.3 specialist
- Question (TT) – What will the specialist be? Don’t really know. A lot of factors come into play – what would benefit our community and also fit the 0.3 citerica.
- Purchase as many supplies for next
year (the basics – paper, inks).
- Possibly move the printer to the teachers lounge
- Would save money on personal ink – each grade has a printer right now.
- Possibly send out a survey about what teachers need.
- Fundraise so we can pay for
- Dr. Copeland wants to keep Playworks. Think about partnership with colleges to fund playworks (BC, Northeastern)
- City Year – could possibly have less corps members. 6 is good but could be a way to cut cost.
- Next Steps:
- Looking at research/corporations that could fund Playworks
- February 28th next meeting
