3 NC Star Update. 

*Jeanann has updated the plan and will add more as needed. Tara shared the SIT will score Pisgah on the 14 key indicators, provide the necessary evidence for high scores, and choose 3 to 5 indicators as areas to focus on. SIT will update progress of these indicators at each meeting. All of BCS will be required to focus on one indicator of the county’s choosing.

4. School Plan-Plan B Beyond

Called Board Meeting at 10: a.m. this morning. *After much discussion, the Board approved Plan B Beyond this morning, 4 to 3. The first week will be A, B, A, B, and virtual on Friday for K-8 students (Onboarding), then 5 weeks of virtual instruction. On Sept. 28th, the board will revisit school status. There is concern over K getting their devices in a timely fashion that first week. Meet the Teacher Zoom meetings will still occur on 8/12-8/14.

5. Supply Money-$20.00

*Students will need home and school materials, but cannot share anything. Braschler shared her list of supplies to purchase.
