2. Standing Item: School Climate
a. Our district will be partnering with Generation Ready to
conduct equity walks in both buildings. June 5th (Elementary)
and June 6th (High School).
b. Surveys- how do we engage the community? Include in report
card mailings; mass mailings like we do for the newsletter; reach
out to local organizations; how do they get returned to us?
Outcome: Keep school climate as a standing item and focus for future BLT

3. Other topics
a. Handbook updates- Current website posting of the handbook is
still out of date; formatting is terrible; keep the subheadings?

full days over the summer (in addition to its regular meetings) to review and
update each section of the handbook.
