Report from Evening ASB Council
The minutes from the Evening, November 16, 2016, meeting were distributed.
Mrs. McKenna discussed the purpose of the Council and the responsibilities of being an ASB member. She explained the role of ASB officers and informed the Council about voting in representatives at the November 2016 meeting.
Mrs. McKenna explained the rules to spending ASB funds. Ultimate approval of any expenditures must be approved by Director Debbie Roberts before ASB monies is spent.
Mrs. McKenna explained that the Daytime and Evening Councils are technically one; the Whittier Adult School ASB Council. Meetings are set at two different times for the convenience of both Daytime and Evening students.
Mrs. McKenna’s role is to organize and guide the meetings, but the ASB members vote on all necessary decisions.
One of the Council members suggested the Adult School offer a CPR course to the community on a Saturday. Mrs. McKenna thanked the Council member for the suggestion and said she will bring the idea to Director, Debbie Roberts.
Another Council Member suggested the ASB sponsor a “Day of the Student.” She thought a celebration at the end of the year with music, food, and motivational speakers would be a wonderful way to support and celebrate the students at the Adult School.
A few students requested a back drop be provided for the Photo IDs. Mrs. McKenna will look into this possibility.
Mrs. McKenna informed the Council about a large closet full of professional clothing, both female and male, will be available to all students in room #305 before the end of the school year.
Mrs. McKenna thanked all the ASB members for their attendance at the meeting. She recognized that the participation from the ABE and ESL Departments is very low this year due to the fact their classes are held off campus. She especially thanked the ASB and ESL members for making the extra effort to participate in the ASB meetings. We are hoping to encourage more students from the ABE and ESL Departments to attend future ASB meetings.
Mrs. McKenna will get an update regarding the mural the ASB is interested in buying for the school.
Mrs. McKenna will get an update regarding the Student Scholarships.
Mrs. McKenna will get an update regarding the ear muffs for students.
No concerns were brought up at this meeting.
The meeting was adjourned.
