Meeting #14

  • Mr. Ronquillo began the meeting by reminding the team that when discussing staffing implications, the team is discussing potential impacts on people and jobs. It is important to note that many staffing decisions include items that may be negotiated with our bargaining partners. These are preliminary ideas; no decisions have been made or brought to the bargaining table.

    At the last meeting, Mr. Ronquillo presented the potential staffing impacts for classified staff at each level. That presentation continued this meeting with the potential certificated staffing impacts at each level. 

    The charts below describe the potential certificated staffing impacts at each level. The staffing models for certain positions change as the student enrollment for the site increases. The charts below are for certificated positions only.

    After Mr. Ronquillo’s presentation the team discussed the next steps in the process. The goal has been to land on a recommendation or recommendations to give to the Board of Education. After some discussion, the team decided they would like to take a poll to gauge which of the two models ideas the team is most in favor of. The team was given a poll where they were asked if they preferred model 3 or model 4 ideas. 60% of the team responded that they preferred model 4 and 40% preferred model 3.

    The team then decided that they would continue meeting in June. Due to graduation, there will be no meeting on June 9, 2021. The next two meetings will be on June 16th and June 23rd.

    This meeting can be viewed in its entirety on our YouTube channel.
