 4:30 p.m.          President Schafer called to order the Special Meeting/Workshop of the Board

Community Engagement Leadership Team (CELT) Initiative

President Schafer opened the special meeting with a recap of the previous meeting on this topic. The focus for this meeting was to refine the Board’s definition of student success. This will eventually be communicated to school district staff and eventually the CELT. Ashoke Menon, the facilitator, led a discussion on the language of success and what that would look like in schools and within the community.

The Board participated in a series of activities to assist in the process. In addition, the Board was tasked with defining what CELT will look like when working at capacity.

5:35 p.m.       The meeting was adjourned.
