Board Members Comments

(1) Ernie Moran wished everyone Happy Holidays. He reported on the recent CSBA Conference that he attended, saying he expecially enjoyed the workshop on Closing the Gap as it related to ELL students. He asked Ross Swearingen if the data can be separated on new students and students that have been in the program for 3-4 years. (2) Monte Worle commented on the Academy marching band which did a great job in the Victorville Christmas Parade. Also, the Cadet Corps from Puesta del Sol and Liberty School, and a group of Brentwood students marched in the parade. (3) Willie Davis Pringle reported that he brought back loads of good information from the CSBA conference, and he especially liked the workshops on healthy schools and safety. (4) Dr. Gabriel Stine wished everyone a Merry Christmas and thanked them for waiting during the expulsions. (5) Karen Morgan said she attended CSBA as a delegate as she was appointed to carry out the term vacated by a board member from Bear Valley. She found the conference very exciting and especially liked the workshop on "When Bad Things Happen to Good Boards" and "Maximizing Your Community." It was great to see that our school district is so far ahead of the game as we already do a lot of the things mentioned at workshops. In fact, we could have taught many of the workshops.
