Recognition of Nikita Dukes.  Superintendent D’Amico presented Nikita Dukes, an 8th grade teacher at Rougon Elementary, with a certificate for the effective work that she is doing with 8th grade math students.  The Louisiana State Department of Education sent a letter announcing that Rougon’s 8th grade, ranked 18th out of 429 when compared to other schools with an 8th grade in Louisiana.  This accomplishment represented Ms. Dukes’ students’ iLEAP scores as they entered her mathematics classroom in the 7th grade in 2010 and their LEAP scores when they completed her 8th grade math class in 2011.Rougon Elementary partnered with the Office of STEM in the ENFA-Middle School Model pilot this year and are anticipating gains in math students’ scores for 2011-2012. 

 

Acknowledgement of Students & Instructors from Livonia High School.  Superintendent D’Amico recognized Levi Bourque, Joey Jarreau and their instructors Mr. Mark Tarver, Agriculture Teacher, and Randy Jarreau, Welding Instructor, for their accomplishments in the 2012 Future Farmers of America (FFA) Welding Competition held at the Associated Builders and Contractors Training Facility (ABC) in Gonzales, Louisiana.  The LHS/FFA Welding Team competed against numerous other schools from parishes all around the state and won 2nd Place Overall!    In addition, LHS welder, Levi Bourque, placed in the individual competition by having the third best overall weld in this state competition.  None of them were able to attend the meeting due to scheduling conflicts; therefore, certificates were prepared and presented to their Principal Stacy Gueho to deliver to them. 

 

Presentation Regarding the New Parent Leadership Training Program in the City of New Roads. Mrs. Bernadine St. Cyr., a member of the City Council, attended the School Board meeting on behalf of Mayor Robert Meyers.  She presented information regarding a training program, by the City of New Roads, designed to help parents and their children become better students and citizens. The proposed program targets students in grades K-3.  Ms. St. Cyr stated that they had spoken to Ms. Marilyn Taylor, Principal of Rosenwald Elementary, and she had agreed to allow the program to be held at the school. 

 

Mr. Chad Aguillard commended the Mayor and City Council of New Roads for their assistance with helping the school system in their endeavor of educating parents to help their children.

Presentation Regarding a Dropout Recovery Program.   Superintendent D’Amico reviewed a program called NODropouts.  The program partners with more than 40 school districts across the United States, including districts in Louisiana, to turn dropouts into diploma holders.  The American Academy’s innovative Dropout Recovery Program offers school districts a proven solution to a challenging problem of bringing students who are beyond the reach of traditional programs back to school and back on track, as many students’ life circumstances force them to have different priorities and activities during the traditional school day.  The program is set up by the American Academy; they hire staff, locate students, and put laptops and Internet connectivity in students’ hands who are dropouts on the path to graduation, at no risk to the school system.  They enroll students who weren’t participating and bring them back into the district, and the public school benefits from improved attendance and graduation rates for accountability.  There are no start-up costs, as the per pupil amount of the MFP (not to exceed state funding) provides funding for the program, thus no risk to the school district.  The school system will not be billed until a student is enrolled and engaged; if they stop making progress, the billing is stopped immediately.  Superintendent D’Amico requested that the School Board consider her recommendation of implementing the NODropout program for our school system. 

 

Mr. Kevin Hotard made a motion to enter into an agreement between the American Academy, LLC (NoDropouts) and the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board, as recommended by Superintendent D’Amico.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Chad Aguillard.  The motion carried.

Consider Adoption of a Proposed Reapportionment Plan.   Mrs. Nancy Jensen, with Garnet Innovations, was contracted by the School Board to prepare materials in regards to the reapportionment plan following the 2010 Census.  Every ten years, district maps are prepared using data from the census depicting race deviation for School Board districts and preliminary workshops are held with members of the Board before a public hearing is scheduled.  After the Board votes on a plan, it will be submitted to the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. for consideration of approval.  A public hearing was scheduled for 5:00 p.m. (1/2 hour before the regularly scheduled meeting); however, Mrs. Jensen announced that due to a lack of a quorum, the public hearing was not held.  She prepared a PowerPoint and made reference to the large maps (Plan 2-amended; Plan 4; Plan 5 and Plan 6) that were displayed on the wall in the School Board meeting room.  Mrs. Jensen mentioned that she started with Plan 1, of which no one liked and she developed Plan 2.  After the workshop, Mrs. Anita LeJeune requested an amendment, with the exception of Districts C & D; Plan 3 was never presented due to a 50% deviation; Plan 4 split the Fordoche and Livonia area. Mrs. Jensen mentioned that she had received several telephone calls regarding Plan 4 splitting Fordoche and Livonia. A Plan 5 was devised.  Mr. Chad Aguillard and Mr. Thomas Nelson requested a change on plans 4 and 5. Mrs. Jensen devised Plan 6, and she mentioned that there are fewer lockouts or divided precincts than Plans 4/5.   Mrs. Jensen was asked what plan she prefers and she stated Plan 6.  Mr. Brandon Bergeron stated that he would like the District to be more consolidated and does not think that Valverda should be in his district.  Mr. Nelson stated that he is of the opinion that Mr. Bergeron, Mrs. LeJeune and Mr. Cline should meet and discuss their districts to work out a compromise; Mr. Chad Aguillard stated that he would like them to work it out, too.  Mrs. Jensen was asked about the timeline associated with the reapportionment plan. She stated that the deadline is October for approval by Justice in December; a special meeting may have to be scheduled.

Price increases are being proposed in an effort to defray some of the additional costs that are expected during the 2012-2013 school year, as a result of new requirements passed in legislation this year. The federal government will give an additional $0.06 cents per lunch to meet these standards which are expected to cost the district approximately $0.11 per lunch and $0.28 per breakfast. Some of these new requirements include the following: the increase of fruit and vegetable servings from ¾ cup to 1 cup daily; requirements on the minimum amount of leafy greens, red-orange, and starchy vegetables weekly; an increase in whole grains; fat free flavored milk; foods served are to be trans-fat free; restrictions on sodium and calories.  Other factors causing the increase in food and food items are the price of gasoline, the rising costs of fresh produce, and the increased need for limited costly resources.

 

Additional money collected will also be used to fund an online payment system to allow parents and teachers easy access to their child/children’s cafeteria accounts. This system would usually charge a usage fee for each time money is posted to an account; however, our goal is to provide the service free of charge to all parents in an effort to increase usage of the online system instead. This system is predicted to decrease our staff travel & extra time expenditures, as well as offer a solution to the reoccurring problem of collecting payments due to lost bills and lunch money, etc.

A short discussion ensued.  Board member Chad Aguillard stated that he is skeptical about increasing the prices for school meals.  Board member Kevin Hotard stated that he doesn’t like raising the price of meals; however, given the fact that prices for meals served are higher at other schools and surrounding parishes are already higher; factoring in the cost of improved nutritional quality as required, he is in favor of the increase. 

Mr. Kevin Hotard made a motion, seconded by Mrs. Anita LeJeune, to increase meal prices for the child nutrition program ($1.00 for breakfast, $1.50 for elementary lunch, and $1.75 for high school lunch).

Board member Chad Aguillard requested a roll call that resulted in the following:

 

YEAS:     James Cline, Leslie Grezaffi, Kevin Hotard, Anita Lejeune, and Thomas Nelson.

NAYS:     Chad Aguillard, Frank Aguillard, and Brandon Bergeron

ABSENT:  None

 

By a 5-3 vote of the Board, the motion carried.

Report on TAP, TIF, SIG, Title I, Title II-Part A. Mrs. Karla Wesley-Jack, Supervisor of the Office of Federal Programs Support, prepared a report that provided updates on the following funding sources:  Title I, Title II, SIG 1003 (g), SIG 1003(a).  Rosenwald received approximately $34,000 in School Improvement Funds to be used to conduct a summer program facilitated by Sylvan Learning Center for students of Rosenwald Elementary School only.  The program will provide intervention to 125 students in grades K-4 using the Sylvan program.  She reported that 50 slots are available for remediation of 4th grade students, based upon data from LEAP scores, etc.  Summer school teaching slots were open for everyone in the district to apply; the school system accepted the applications; however a representative from Sylvan Learning interviewed the applicants and chose who they thought would enhance the educational program for the children.  The more relaxed summer environment will hopefully help with test preparation regarding high stakes testing grades.  Mrs. Jack stated that a waiver/letter of request was sent to the State Department not to move forward with TAP for LHS and Valverda due to not receiving the SRCL Grant and the additional cost to the general fund.  All applications – Rougon Elementary School’s year 1 application and Rosenwald and UPCE’s continuing applications have been submitted to the SDOE.  Mrs. Jack also reported that there is a reduction in Title I and Title II allocations for the upcoming school year 2012-2013; thus, adjustments allocated to funds are recommended.  The budget must be submitted by June 1, 2012 to begin spending on July 1, 2012.

Discussion and /or Action Regarding the Current Progress and Future of the Livonia High School Courtyard Project.Discussion and/or Action Regarding the Current Progress and Future of the Livonia High School Courtyard Project.   Mr. William Schildknecht, a teacher at Livonia High School, requested to place an item on the agenda regarding the current progress and future of the Livonia High School Courtyard Project.  Mr. Schildnknecht mentioned that 7th grade students in 2010-2011 worked with professionals to design new plans to transform the courtyard part of the school campus. He mentioned that he and his students worked with architects and engineers who donated their time to transform student visions into comprehensive construction plans that can be executed by contractors.  Although the pace of progress was tremendous, he mentioned that he regretted that more had not been accomplished; however, as a teacher at LHS, his primary responsibility was the success of each student in his classroom, thus the fundraising aspect of the project was placed on the backburner.  Pictures were provided depicting how rain water is not being diverted on the school’s campus causing land erosion due to pooling. Gutters burst and are not repaired causing water to spill out onto students. Without a pavilion the courtyard fails to provide adequate shelter from rain or heat for the 800 students, and expressed that the Board has an opportunity to continue the mission to improve the life of each student in Pointe Coupee Parish by carrying out the Courtyard Project.  Mr. Schildnknecht encouraged the School Board to seize the opportunity to use the draft work completed by licensed architects and engineers to transform the education access and opportunities of this project that reflect ideas and dreams of the students. A discussion ensued. Concerns were expressed regarding other schools having needs at their campus.  Superintendent D’Amico was requested to provide a recommendation to the School Board.  She stated that she would like the School Board to consider allocating $20,000 from the Capital Outlay Account for the project.   

 

Mr. James Cline made a motion to accept Superintendent D’Amico’s recommendation to commit an allocation of $20,000 from the Capital Outlay Account toward the courtyard project at Livonia High School.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Kevin Hotard.  Mr. Chad Aguillard requested a roll call resulting in the following:

 

YEAS:              Frank Aguillard, James Cline, Leslie Grezaffi, Kevin Hotard and

Thomas Nelson

 

NAYS:              Chad Aguillard and Brandon Bergeron

The motion passed by a 5-2-1 vote.

 

Superintendent D’Amico was ordered to investigate the needs of other schools.

Remarks from the Superintendent.Superintendent D’Amico thanked Mr. Schildnknecht for his service to the school system and wished him much success in his future endeavor.  She stated that test scores were received and the baseline in grade 4 is up overall and down in grade 8. She reported that the school system moved one point and is now ranked 33/71 in school districts with an average % of basic and above. Pointe Coupee ranks #8 in the state for growth between 2007-2012-13 pts. Livonia – Growth 76.1 w/out EOC, attendance, dropout rate, grad cohort; Rosenwald Growth 50.2 w/out attendance bonus points and bonus points; Rougon – 90.4 w/out attendance, dropout rate & bonus points; UPCE – 68.4 w/out attendance, dropout rate and bonus points; Valverda – 95.0 w/out attendance dropout rate and bonus points.   She mentioned that our office and all schools will be closed Monday, May 28, 2012, in observance of Memorial Day (since it was a LEAP year, twelve-month employees will have this holiday) and the abbreviated summer schedule will begin on June 4, 2012, with office hours from 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., closed on Fridays.
