Report from Daytime ASB Council

The minutes from the May 31, 2012, Daytime ASB Council was distributed. Mrs. McKenna and Mrs. Roberts explained that the minutes from each council meeting are given to the other council, so that they each know what is being discussed at each other’s meetings.

New Business

The Council was reminded of the possible donations from Target when staff or students use a Target credit card for their purchases. The Council was reminded that at the time of their purchase, they must state that they want their donation to go to Sierra Vista, not Whittier Adult School. It was also brought up that advertisement by way of school fliers may help to promote more donations from Target.

The next ASB meeting will include voting for Council Officers. The Council will vote for a president, vice-president, treasurer, and secretary. The Council was informed that in becoming an officer, an individual will not be burdened with a lot of extra duties. Most often, an officer’s main duty is to be a representative of the larger Council.

Old Business

The council was provided with a brief WASC update. The Whittier Adult School received a six year accreditation with a visit the third year. Mrs. McKenna and Mrs. Roberts shared the targeted improvements that the school is currently addressing. For example, the school has increased support for the GED Lab in hopes of raising the number of students passing the GED exam; reviewing assessment tests; and updating classroom materials, especially for Sierra Vista.

The Council was provided the Presbyterian Care Force One medical mobile schedule. The Council was asked to draw their attention to the dates, times, and services provided which are listed on the flyer. They were also informed that these services are available for everyone, not just WUHSD students.

Student Concerns

A council member brought up the idea of beginning the preparation for “Day of the Teacher” earlier.

Student ASB members also came up with the idea of going to classes on the evening of ASB meetings and inviting students to attend in hopes of getting more students to be involved in the Evening ASB Council.

The next ASB Evening meeting will be held Wednesday, October 24, at 7:00 PM.

The meeting was adjourned.
