Regular Meeting/Workshop of the Board

Student Services Center, Room 4

10903 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW, Lakewood, WA 98499

October 24, 2016


Present:            President Marty Schafer, Vice President Carole Jacobs, Becki Kelley, Joe Vlaming, Paul Wagemann and Debbie LeBeau

6:00p.m.          President Marty Schafer called to order the Regular Meeting/Workshop of the Board.


Deputy Superintendent Brian Laubach and Director of Information Technology Services Craig Cook provided an update on safety, security and equity. Mr. Cook provided a recap of the Technology Improvement Plan which was presented to the Board in May 2015. He discussed network security and safety and highlighted information regarding the core network infrastructure that has one system supporting multiple devices which includes telephones, computers, cameras and security. 

Mr. Cook also discussed student access to technology to support 21st century learning. The district is working with grants and existing budget models to increase access and develop sustainable technology models that include training, curriculum, access and digital citizenship. 

Our goal is to ensure that classrooms are media rich and have interactive technology to enhance student learning. Some of the older schools (Tillicum, Custer and Dower) were converted this past year in order to provide students access to computers using low-power mobile and VDI devices. These low-power streams are replacing laptops in the elementary schools. A plan is in place to update all classrooms to current interactive teachers wall technology. This plan includes a timeline for upgrades that make these schools equitable with new schools. 

Over this school year, Information Technology Services will continue to focus on developing classroom tools for teachers to enhance student learning through greater technology accessibility. 


Administrator for Business Services and Capital Projects Rick Ring provided an update on the Facilities Advisory Committee recommendation for the Board to consider regarding the closure of Woodbrook Middle School. The report included a draft timeline of all issues needing to be addressed if the Board accepts the FACs recommendation. These issues include attendance boundary changes, the possible purchase of portables, communication with impacted families and citizens in the Woodbrook neighborhood and staffing. The Board requested a follow-up meeting to address the open questions related to the FAC recommendations.
