Renee Stancil reviewed the Polices & Procedures. Liz Gonzalez and her team covered the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Topics under discussion and charted were Academics/Parking Lot/ Sports/Art/PBIS/ Enrichment/Parent Engagement. Groups added to each topic and were encouraged to bring back these goals to share with their program staff. Brenda Robinson, Director of Nutrition Services discussed compliance foods.
