The security camera at the front door was discussed.  When a visitor comes to the door all you can really see is the top of their head. Debbie will contact Kade Lusk to see if he is able to adjust the security camera to get a better view of the visitor and if they could view some of the bus loading and unloading area. If not, they will look into getting a camera to see the bus loading and unloading and maybe some of the parking area.

We have one student going to speech therapy two days a week.  The school will pay for these services this year.  If services are needed next school year, we will look into applying for some help with funding from the State Department.

Melinda will contact Jason Bransford to set up doing another teacher observation and a final evaluation before the end of the school year.
